AD VICEVice Narcotics receives a tip from one Freddie Calhoun, junkie, snitch and all around no-hoper. Freddie seems to be playing it straight for once, sharing information on a city-wide marijuana distribution ring. Detective Phelps and Earle will search, question and raid their way to the top of the operation, and in the process learn how the crooks could be smuggling fifty pound shipments of dope in plain sight.

13 Clues (1 not tagged, but if you follow the guide you will get all 13.)

Majority of Information thanks to: Wolven Freak (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/member.php?u=288033)

09-13-2011, 09:45 PM
Thanks for the guide mate.

09-18-2011, 02:23 PM
great guide again :)

one point, it is possible to catch the grocery clerk before he makes it to the ladder if you are quick enough. does not make a difference to how the case plays out at all but a small time saver if you are trying to rush through this case.

Great guide! I skipped the second bit because I was just going for the achievements. Less than an hour to finish this dlc and get my 1400/1400

Thanks for the guide, do you need to 5 star this to get the Shamus To The Stars achievement?

12-30-2013, 06:59 PM
Thanks for the guide, do you need to 5 star this to get the Shamus To The Stars achievement?

No. You don't need to 5-star any DLC case to get "Shamus to the Stars" if you have the regular retail edition with the extra cases downloaded.

However, if you have the Complete Edition, you do need to 5-star the four "DLC" cases as they have been worked into the game as regular cases and it changed the requirement of the achievement.
