"I know a guy who can sell us all the guns we need...which is, trust me, quite a lot."
Jerry Martinez

Cleaning House is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories given to protagonist Victor Vance by army sergeant Jerry Martinez from his office in the Fort Baxter Air Base in Vice City.


Victor Vance meets Sergeant Jerry Martinez, nervous that the drugs he is stashing for Martinez will be found. Martinez calms Victor down and asks him whether he has a problem with guns morally. Victor, despite being nervous, agrees to run another errand for Martinez; who uses Victor's sick brother as bait.

Victor drives over to Phil's Depot in Viceport and asks for Martinez's money. Phil tells Victor that he has not got the money on him and takes him to where the money is being kept. Phil informs Victor that the place, 101 Bayshore Avenue, has been taken over by the Cholo street gang and they evicted him. Victor says he will get the money and Phil leaves.

Victor kills the Cholo gang members outside the house before entering the building and killing the two gang members inside. After collecting the cash from under the floorboards, Victor returns the money to Martinez in the Fort Baxter military base.


In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go and meet Phil Cassidy
  • Get into Phil's truck
  • Make your way to Phil's old place
  • Get rid of the Cholos outside Phil's place
  • Go inside
  • Deal with the rest of the Cholo in here
  • Take the money back to Martinez
