We've got real things to worry about. Someone's been helping themselves to the stash. The Mendezes are freaking out and I told them we'd take care of it.
Lance Vance

Taking the Fall is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories given to protagonist Victor Vance by his brother Lance Vance from his apartment in Ocean Beach, Vice City


Lance is talking to their accountant on the phone just as Vic enters. The two have a brief talk before heading out. When outside Vic asks Lance about who stole their coke. Lance, after thinking for a minute, mentions that Bikers are to blame. Vic flies a Maverick over to Starfish Island, where some Bikers are riding on their bikes. When Lance kills them all, Vic flies over to a hotel construction site in Downtown where Lance kills more Bikers. After a shoot-out, a rocket hits the chopper and Lance falls out. Vic then bails out of the burning chopper and starts making his way inside the hotel to find Lance. When all the Bikers are dead, Lance comes out of a room on the hotel with a bike. When Vic asks him where the coke is, he says they sold it and leaves.
