“U In My Arms” by Jeremy Blake


About the “Casing the Jewel Store” GTA 5 Heist Preparation Mission:

Before the duo drive into the Vangelico Jewelry Store, Michael encounters Lester at his garment factory. Once there, Lester instructs him to go in and use a pair of camera-glasses to take pictures of the displays, ventilation and alarm system.

The player must then drive around the block and go up to the roof through a restored building to explore the ventilation of the shop.


Eddie Toh

He’ll give directions and carry dirt bikes if chosen, making driving in the tunnels easier. He’ll try to get all the jewellery in the Quiet method. Cut 14 per cent.

Karim Denz

If selected, when fleeing, he won’t provide directions and would have to pause inside the tunnels to get his bearings (only if Norm was selected and dropped off his bike), and the street bikes he provides will be performing poorly in the mud. He’ll even miss some of the jewellery in the Quiet approach. Split of 8 per cent.

Gustavo Mota

He will not lose any diamonds in the Smart approach if selected, and will not crash his bike. He will therefore keep the customers competently in check if the Loud approach is taken, and if you want Karim as the driver, he won’t get all the jewels, leaving you with $4.5M. Cut 14 per cent.

Norm Richards

When selected, during the heist, he loses a lot of diamonds, taking down the overall take in the Smart approach to around $4.5 M and in the Loud approach, one of the hostages attempts to escape, and Michael is forced to deal with them. He also crashes his bike before entering the tunnels for either strategy, losing his bag and adding injury expenses. 7% cut.

Paige Harris

The player will have 90 seconds to grab the jewels if picked. Cut of 15 per cent.

Christian Feltz

The player will have 60 seconds to grab the jewels if picked. Split of 8 per cent.

Rickie Lukens

If selected, the player will only have 50 seconds to catch all the jewels. Cut 4 per cent.
