Checking Out is a case featured in Criminal Case: City of Trevino as the fifth case of the game. It is the fifth one to take place in the San Roberto district of Trevino.

Plot

After hearing the news that fugitive Larry Howell was at the Grand Roberto Hotel, Camila and the player went there, only to be informed about a murder. The team then gathered the poisoned body of hotelier Nico Miralles and decided to solve the murder instead of searching for Larry.

Camila and the player had to incriminate the current head of Trevino Bank Velvet Bush, porter Stephen West, and bartender Kalpana Padhi as the suspects. Mid-investigation, Aaron tracked Larry Howell into the nearby park. There, they managed to find him and added one more suspect, who is the victim's daughter, Teresa. Later, they had to stop Teresa and Kalpana of arguing about a cocktail. Eventually, the team was able to incriminate Stephen as the killer.

After confessing to the murder, he declared that Nico forced him to work all day. When he asked for resignation, he threatened his children, resulting in him keeping working as a porter. One day, he accidentally broke Teresa's suitcases and Nico blamed him for that. Angered, when he saw the victim left his mobile phone at the hotel corridor, he rigged it to emit an electrical charge, which brutally killed Nico after he had picked up the mobile phone. Judge Pennington sentenced him to 7 years in jail.

Post-investigation, Larry requested the team for a lighter sentence in exchange for information regarding Truth No More and then asked them to find his smartwatch. They found it, which (per Aaron) signified that Truth No More's scheme was initiated by "The Liar" and they recruited Larry and Dolores. The team also found a hidden message to them, which said: "Get me to inform you of the secret camp". Larry then directed the team to the hotel corridor to find his GPS device. Thanks to the device, they were able to track The Liar's location and shockingly, they met Dolores Johnson, who refused to talk anything else. When they wanted to arrest her, she escaped via a smoke bomb.

Meanwhile, Chief McKinney asked Officer Perez and the player to investigate Truth No More. At the park, they found an envelope, which contained a strange message. Isabela deduced that the mastermind had recruited the depressed citizens and asked them to blow up the district and promised they would provide them a better life. The team then informed the Chief of their shocking discovery.

After all the events, the Chief asked the team to be aware of the mastermind's scheme, while Jefferson intended to inspect The Liar's camp with the player.
