After about 6 months of small house robberies, Cody had learned how to make enough money from his Vlogging and Thefts to keep the family business, and his house paid all together with his parents, he even was now making profit on the side. After a year since his first theft he had finally made enough money to move himself away from his current situation and get a train ticket to Los Santos.

Seeing the amount of Criminals after viewing his first court case, Palmer felt a little more welcome to the city and more open to asking people questions. Being a previous house robber, Palmer asks a random bystander at the Alta Apartments where he may be able to get the supplies or who to talk to about how to get back into his previous lifestyle. After paying a random person $300, Palmer recieved information about the location of a man who can tell him what houses to hit, as well as informing him to bring a lockpick. Unknown where to get a lockpick, Palmer begins reading through his phone, checking the yellow pages and twitter. While scrolling YP, Palmer notices an advertisement for two repair services offering lockpicks: Harmony Repairs Garage, and Hayes Auto Body Repairs. Checking the GPS on his Faggio, Palmer sets his path for Hayes. Upon arriving and approaching the garage, he is informed that nobody is actually currently on duty there and so nobody could really help him. Annoyed slightly, Palmer sets his GPS for Harmony up in the hills. A long dirt drive later, Palmer pulls into Harmony and immediately finds a mechanic. Palmer purchases a few lockpicks from the Mechanic and quickly makes his way to the location he paid information for. Going to the location, Palmer notices it is an abandoned lock smith building and pulls around to the back. The parking lot was empty, however there was a man just standing there staring off into the distance. Talking to this man, Palmer recieved the ok from the Boss and was put on the list of house robbers.
