GTA 5: Cleaning Out The Bureau Mission Guide (Gold Medal)

Michael has been doing odd jobs for Steve Haines and Dave Norton for a while now, and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight. Michael can’t afford to say no to Dave and Steve, as he risks exposing the deal he and Dave Norton made back when things went down in North Yankton.

Dave and Steve are back with another job for Michael in Cleaning Out The Bureau. But this time, the risk of their secrets spewing out into the open is as big as ever, forcing Michael to do one last job for the FIB.

Here is everything you need to know about the Cleaning Out The Bureau mission in GTA 5 and how you can complete all its Gold Medal objectives in this guide.

Cleaning Out The Bureau Synopsis

Michael arrives at Darnell Bros to meet up with Lester, where the pair briefly discuss Michael and his issues with Trevor. Lester acknowledges the problem and tells Michael that they will have to put the Union Depository job on hold since they desperately need Trevor on the job if they want to complete it successfully.

Dave Norton arrives shortly after and asks Michael to do one last job for him and Steve Haines. Steve arrives moments later and tells Michael and Lester that the Agency is on to them and has been closely watching him.

With the risk of the FIB gaining access to their records, Steve Haines sends Michael and Lester on a mission to find a way to infiltrate the Agency and gain access to some evidence that the FIB has on them. Steve, in return, promises he will delete all of Michael’s files in the Bureau. Michael agrees and tells Steve that the job will be the last thing he does for Steve.

Michael and Lester make their way to the FIB parking lot, where Lester intends to track and tail a janitor named Harvey Molina, from whom they can take some IDs and overalls to enter the FIB building unnoticed.

As soon as Harvey drives out of the parking lot, Michael and Lester follow him to his apartment in Las Lagunas Boulevard in Downtown Vinewood. Michael follows Harvey all the way to his apartment door and enters the door as soon as Harvey gets inside.

Michael gets straight to the point and asks Harvey for some overalls. Harvey is shocked to see Michael at first, but willingly gives Michael a fresh set of overalls when Michael tells him he’ll fill his pockets with money as long as Harvey cooperates.

With the overalls and IDs in hand, Michael and Lester drive back to Darnell Bros to meet up with Franklin, whom Lester called to help out with the acquisition of some building blueprints.

Just remember to skip all the cutscenes, zoom in on all the passing cars’ license plates, and keep a good distance from Harvey while you’re following his car.
