Events in GTA: North Yankton Stories
During the spring of 2013, Felipe Hocker, a businessman from Liberty City, has arrived in Ludendorff to build a chemical plant. In his free time, Hocker collects rare and valuable vehicles and hires Drebin Family and Tommy Bell to steal them for him.
Hocker though tries to get away with the vehicles without paying by pitting Daniel and Tommy against each other. He tells Tommy, that Daniel has been wearing a wire, which enrages him and causes him to kill many members of the Drebin Family, before learning the truth from Daniel. Tommy then goes and kills Hocker to get revenge.
Drebins are still active and powerful in spite of Tommy's slaughter.
Events in King of The Hill
Drebin Family has temporarily moved in Los Santos in fall of 2013 during the events of Grand Theft Auto V. Without Tommy. They operate in the Sandy Shores area, running a couple of grocery stores and other small businesses. They're also close associates of the Armenian Mafia and fellow biker gang The Lost MC.
When Miklos Lipton starts his crusade to become the ultimate kingpin of Los Santos' underworld, he and his new ally, Aztecas Underboss Victor Sax, plan to weaken the Armenians by starting a gang war between Drebin and The Lost. Miklos disguises himself as one of the Drebin Family members and kills a bunch of Lost bikers. The war starts between the two biker gangs.
Sometime later, the Lost and Drebins find out, that the whole war was part of the Aztecas' plan to take down Armenians. Together, they attack Aztecas hangout, but are defeated by Miklos.
Events in Los Santos Chronicles
