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.

Jerry Martinez is at his office calling somebody. While Victor Vance starts to turn up.
Jerry: Sure, no worries! Oh look, the Calvary just turned up. Okay, bye.
Martinez hangs up the phone.
Jerry: Corporal, what can I do for you?
Victor: Listen Jerry, You gotta get rid of that stuff. It's making me nervous. I'm not into drugs and I-
Jerry: Shut the fuck up, my friend. You're really getting on my nerves. Besides, who're you gonna get in trouble with?! I'm your superior officer, and you told me you needed the money.
Victor: I do need the money.
Jerry: Uh-huh...but you don't like drugs.
Victor: I don't think they're a good scene.
Jerry: Me neither. ...But you like guns, huh? They don't give you a moral problem, I mean?
Victor: No?
Jerry: Good, cause I know a guy who can sell all the guns we can get 'em, which is trust me; quite a lot.
Victor: I don't know, Sergeant. This is getting heavy.
Jerry: We'll make a whole pile of cash for nothing, by that sick brother of yours a whole lot of candy.
Victor: What do I have to do?
Martinez gets off the desk and starts to snort in cocaine.
Jerry: Nothing. Just go and pick up the money from them. He's down over by the docks.
Victor is about the leave the office.
Jerry: Hey, Vic! You want some of this?
Victor sighs in frustration and leaves the office while Jerry starts to dose in cocaine.
Victor drives to a warehouse in Viceport, where he meets Phil Cassidy at a shooting range inside.
Phil: You must be Vic, Jerry told me about you. Hey, I used to be in the service...
Victor: Yeah listen, he said you had some money for me.
Phil: Sure, sure. I ain't a bank, I don't have it on me, but I'll take you to it.
Victor and Phil leave the warehouse and drives to Phil's old place in his Walton. Near the area, he finds some Cholo gang members and tells Victor about them.
Phil: I've been having trouble with them Cholo boys. Some of them have been...
Victor: What the hell is a Cholo?!
Phil: Bunch of Mexican Gang-bangers. Bad boys trying to take over all gun running in town.
Victor: Look. Where's the money Phil?!
Phil: Yeah, well, funny thing is you see it's like this... It's under the floorboards of my old place. But the Cholo evicted me and now I can't get to it.
Victor: I'll get to it.
Phil gets into his truck and drives off.
Phil: See you around.
Victor shoots one of the Cholo gang members as he approaches the place.
Cholo: What the fuck is this?!
Victor goes inside the apartment, finds the Cholo snorting cocaine there and shoots him while the others run off. He also finds the money under the floorboards, and drives all the way back to his barracks.
