Roba captured Major Vernon after his team was sent to kill him, and had him brainwashed and sent back to the United States to assemble another team to go after him. Vernon returned with a team that consisted of Simon Riley, Kevin Sparks, Marcus Washington, Cumberland, and Sykes, and betrayed them to Roba. The drug lord decided to brainwash the team into helping him smuggle terrorists and drugs across other parts of the globe, and successfully managed to brainwash Sparks and Washington. Though Roba managed to break, Roba placed him in a coffin with Vernon's corpse, and secretly let Washington and Sparks escape from facility to the states.

However, Riley managed to survive and made it back home before getting revenge on Sparks and Washington for murdering his family, and tortured Roba's right-hand man Gilberto to find Manuel's location. Roba was shot in the head by Riley, and the latter burned his mansion and compound as he approached by General Shepherd to join Task Force 141.
