Now, there's a ruined town out west of here. Aldea Malvada. And there's some piece of shit DEA officer meeting with an FBI agent with a dossier. Now you get the dossier and you make both of them disappear!
Frank Tenpenny

Misappropriation is a mission given to protagonist Carl Johnson by Officer Frank Tenpenny in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


Carl visits C.R.A.S.H. at their house in Prickle Pine, Las Venturas and finds the duo getting a grill ready. Things start out normal, but a paranoid Tenpenny reveals that their careers are in jeopardy and Tenpenny needs Carl to get a dossier containing dirt on the duo and kill the DEA and FBI agents.

Carl heads to Aldea Malvada and intercepts the meeting, killing the enemies and claiming the dossier.

Mission Objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Kill the target and grab the evidence dossier
  • The target is dead and has dropped the evidence dossier, grab it before anyone else does


Like all missions for Tenpenny, there is no reward.

Post mission phone call

Frank Tenpenny: Carl! You got that dossier?

Carl Johnson: Yeah, I got the files. What you want me to do with 'em?

Frank Tenpenny: We need to meet up someplace quiet and take care of things. There's a ghost town, Las Brujas in the devil's Castle, you know it?

Carl Johnson: Yeah, I'll find it.

Frank Tenpenny: I know you will. I'll see you there. Carl.

Video Walkthroughs



  • Despite Tenpenny telling CJ to kill a DEA and an FBI agent, the player only has to kill the agent carrying the dossier.
  • The FBI agents carry AK-47s and Micro-SMGs. This is the only mission in which they use AKs. However, if the player kills the target before he gets into the helicopter, the agents will revert to using Micro-SMGs.
  • If the player plays the mission on the Android version, the grill can be seen jumping on the right side of the screen. The grill can be hidden on the left side of the CRT (if the player plays the mission on PS2/Xbox).
  • The dossier carrier, if unharmed all the time but still in hot pursuit by Carl, will eventually be ran over by a Cheetah on the streets of Las Venturas, making the dossier an easy picking.
  • It is crucial to pick up the dossier before anyone else, because unlike most other missions, other FBI agents will pick up the dossier and escape with it should the original carrier be killed, but for Carl, once he obtains the dossier, the mission instantly passes no matter what.
  • The carrier heli is all-proof and will be locked. It can be obtained by dragging it into the Verdant Meadows hangar using a Tow Truck.
