GTA Online players need to visit five crime scenes around Los Santos and steal the evidence, with each piece of collected evidence giving a new Service Carbine part. Once you’ve got all five parts, the M16 will be automatically added to your weapon wheel alongside $55,000.

The crime scenes don’t spawn every time so you might need to check on several, but once you’ve found five, the Service Carbine will be yours. You can check out all 10 locations on the GTA Online map and list below.
