Biography

Background

Sanchez is a Mexican immigrant from Tijuana. He illegally moved to the U.S. hoping to find work to provide for his poor family. Airto first started out in San Fransico and eventually moved to Los Angeles. Airto got a job as the store clerk for the 20th Century Market. However, he was soon discovered by Ernesto Juarez, who coereced him into being part of his reefer distribtion ring. Airto acted as a middleman by selling reefer filled soup cans using the market as a cover. Ernesto forced Airto to comply, and threatened to deport him, or worse, murder him and his family. Despite his reluctance, fear of deportation and concern for his family, Airto was able sell much of the reefer and earn good money.

Events of L.A. Noire

During Detectives Cole Phelps and Roy Earle's investigation of the reefer ring, they discovered the reefer filled soup cans at Juan Garcia Cruz's house. It became evident that the 20th Century Market store was a distribtion point, so raided the store. Airto attempted to flee but was caught by Phelps and questioned, during which Airto gave up his knowledge of Ernesto. Despite Phelp's promise to not deport Sanchez, it is unknown if Airto remained in the U.S. or if he was, in fact, deported back to Mexico.
