Not to be confused with Deal Steal, a mission in GTA III.

"Gonzalez thinks he can move product without paying. He must be on something! Hehe! He's hidden some shit offshore. Maybe you bad boys can go get it for me."
Ricardo Diaz

Steal the Deal is the first mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories given to protagonist Victor Vance by drug baron Ricardo Diaz from his mansion on Starfish Island, Vice City.


Diaz has been aware of a deal Gonzalez has and wants the Vance brothers, Lance and Victor, to steal the shipment. After a short talk, the Vance's leave Diaz's Mansion and head over to the The Pole Position Club in Ocean Beach. As Lance suggested, one of Gonzalez' goons comes out of the strip club and gets in a Cheetah parked there and they follow him. The goon leaves the car at Vice Point and heads for a Jetski. Victor takes another Jetski there and follows the goon again. After a chase the goon stops at Viceport, where other goons and boats are. Victor makes his way there, killing all the witnesses and steals the Jetmax where the drugs are and takes them to back to Diaz.
