Albert Thomas is an agent of the Bureau of Narcotics who is active in Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto IV. He is interviewed by the Liberty Tree after law enforcement officers discover three suspects in a portable methamphetamine lab in Steinway. In the interview, Thomas indicated that meth is a serious problem in Liberty City, commenting that it destroyed the lives and businesses of cocaine dealers in Vice City and it was doing the same in Liberty City. A later article reports that local narcotics agents, including Thomas and his LCPD assistant Officer Lenny Macelton, have made the meth lab operational in an effort to understand the growing meth threat to Liberty City. In the article, Thomas told reporters that law enforcement will not fully understand the threat unless they replicate the process of making and smoking the drug.
