Driller is a mission in Grand Theft Auto V given to protagonist Michael De Santa by Lester Crest in La Mesa, Los Santos.


Michael De Santa, having received a text message confirming the location of the Cutter, arrives at the construction yard and knocks out the security guard at the gate, several construction workers around the yard and a second security guard. After knocking out all the people in the yard, Michael steals a truck with the Cutter on the flatbed, and leaves. Michael talks to Lester Crest asking what he is going to do with the Cutter. Lester tells Michael to go to a parking lot close to the Union Depository where he has paid off the security guard, who will allow them in. After arriving, Michael parks the truck and leaves with the security guard telling Michael he'll move it later.

Pre mission text message

Lester Crest: Ok, there's a tunnel bore machine at a depot in East LS. It's out in the yard, there are guys working there around the clock, and guards as well. Try and get in and out without drawing attention to yourself. lol

Post mission phone call
