Juan Garcia Cruz is a character in L.A. Noire. He is a person of interest in the DLC case, "Reefer Madness".



Juan became part of Ernesto Juarez's reefer ring by storing and guarding the reefer that Ernesto brought in from Tijuana, Mexico.

Since the reefer shipments were very large, Juan also sold some of it on the streets. A most prominent customer was Freddie Calhoun.

Events of L.A. Noire

Freddie gave a tip to the LAPD's Vice Department that would expose the reefer ring by informing Detectives Cole Phelps and Roy Earle of Juan's involvement. As they went to his house to investigate, Juan realized they arrived to arrest him, so he opened fire on them with his Thompson M1. However, Phelps was able to sneak into the house around the back, taking Juan by surprise and gunned him down.
