You looking for some fun? A little...hmm? Some SPANK?
— Chico selling drugs to Maria Latore, in Chaperone.

Chico is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a minor character in Grand Theft Auto III.


Chico is a drug dealer who resides in Portland, Liberty City, he is seen in the mission Chaperone trying to selling SPANK to Maria Latore, in which she refuses by saying "Nah, just the usual".

It is possible that Chico is a member of the Colombian Cartel because of his accent and the fact that he sells SPANK.

Events of GTA III

Chico is an associate of Maria's and a drug-dealer, who appears to sell drugs in Chinatown, as Maria says "He's at the rail station at the Chinatown waterfront I think". Chico tells Maria of parties going on around Portland and also supplies her with drugs. This can be seen as Maria says: "Nah, just the usual" to Chico, and Chico saying "It's my favorite lady", suggesting she is a regular client. Chico offers her SPANK and tells Maria of a party occurring in a warehouse in Atlantic Quays, although the police later storm the party leading to Maria and Claude evading the police to return to Salvatore's Gentlemen's Club in Saint Mark's.

Due to the fact that he knew of a party that the police raided, he may be a police informant, although this is unlikely as he seems to be an independent drug dealer while police informants are generally placed in large gangs.

Claude can, if the player wants to, kill Chico in the mission Chaperone. After Maria has talked to him (though killing him before that can result in a mission failure), he just stands there and does nothing. Once the deal is reached and Maria gets back in the car, Claude can kill him.
