Chase was brought back by ship by Mayor Gleeson to investigate a crime wave she believes Rex Fury is behind, as he is a criminal mastermind and had escaped from Albatross prison. Chase was brought to the police station, where he meets Frank Honey and an apparent old foe, Marion Dunby, who had become the chief. After a briefing, Chase takes care of a bank robbery carried out by the clown robbers.
After the mission, Chase bumps into Natalia Kowalski, who reveals that she had to change her identity to hide from Rex Fury and threatens to leave him for her personal safety.
Later, Chase takes on a gang of robbers on the TV tower, and finds out from the leader that they were working from Rex Fury. Chase decides to go to Albatross Prison to find evidence of Rex, where he meets Blue Whittaker, who tells him about Rex. After investigating his cell, Chase discovers that Rex used a hammer to dig his way out of prison, leading to an assignment in the Bluebell mine to find more evidence, but instead finds Rex, who knocks him out and escapes.
Seeking guidance to defend against Rex, Chase goes to Barry Smith, who teaches him Kung-Fu by listening to a disc. Chase decides to work undercover with Rex's affiliates, starting with Chan Chuang, a person who owns a chop shop, and works for him by stealing cars for him.
He then goes on to work for Vinnie Pappalardo, who assigns him to steal the Bell Pepper Emerald. Dunby then tells chase to get evidence against Chan Chuang by photographing his gang members Doing illegal actions. Chan calls Chase shortly after and tells him to steal a moon buggy since all his most trusted employees had been arrested. Then, Chase is called by chief Dunby to rescue Forrest Blackwell, who has been kidnapped by an unknown criminal gang.
Vinnie Pappalardo then assigns Chase a task to steal a Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton for Rex Fury. After that, Chase decides to head towards the hotel where he heard that Rex Fury and Vinnie were meeting, and learns that Vinnie and Rex had a falling out. He teams up with Vinnie to go into Blackwell tower to find a hidden vault of gold, where Moe explains to him about an incident where Forrest planned to build an apartment with a mall in the Bluebell Park, but was banned due to the park housing a rare squirrel, infuriating Forrest.
When Chase gets to the Tower, when he opens the vault, he is ambushed by Sentinels, who serve as guards. He outruns them, but when he goes to Pappalardo's Ice Cream Parlor in meet up with Vinnie, he rescues him from Rex's goons, who had frozen him in a freezer in retaliation of Vinnie betraying him.
He next goes to the bowels of Rex's hidden base to find Henrik Kowalski, Natalia's father, there he finds that Forrest Blackwell himself is behind the crime wave. Henrik reveals to him a plan made by Blackwell to make an empire on the moon, where Henrik was forced to help make a protective shield for the empire. Upon discovering that Blackwell Tower is actually the rocket that Forrest was planning on using to get to the moon, he sets up force-fields around the tower to prevent the rocket's ignition from incinerating the city.
Next, using another rocket, he goes to the moon empire and reroutes Forrest's rocket back to Earth, where Forrest then refuses to go as states that he decided to build his "utopia" (apartment/mall) on the moon instead, still furious about the incident of his cancelled construction project on Bluebell park. After fighting Rex Fury's T. Rex robot, Forrest destroys the tower, and leaves Rex and Chase to fight while he escapes in an escape pod. Chase then defeats Rex, and saves Natalia's spacecraft from crashing into LEGO City. Chase is congratulated for saving the city and Rex is ultimately put back in jail.
