Burglar is a Side Mission in GTA San Andreas. It becomes available after completing Home Invasion .

Steal goods from resident's homes to resell.

This is an optional endeavor, not required for 100% completion of the game.

This side activity is also present in GTA Vice City.

Burglar - Mission Details:

The Burglar side-mission involves quietly searching houses during night-time for items worth stealing, such as TV sets, stereos, radios, consoles and others.

The mission can be started by entering a black Boxville between 20:00 and 6:00. Not all houses can be stolen from, only those with a yellow arrow in front of the door can be entered.

Once inside a house, the player must find an item and take it back to the van, without making too much noise. If the house's occupant wakes up, they will call the police, giving the player 10 seconds to escape the house before acquiring a 3-star wanted level.

On special occasions, the inhabitants will already be awake upon entering the homes, and some houses may be filled with gang members that will attack CJ.

After 6:00 am, the player must unload their stolen items at a nearby garage marked on the map.

See our guide on how to easily complete the Burglary Mission in one attempt.
