Investigators know a gun can tell a story. That’s a fact that would likely ring true to law enforcement officers of all stripes, it would seem to resonate especially loudly with members of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, a federal agency whose mandate includes cracking down on the illegal use and trafficking of firearms.
A local sheriff’s deputy, who claimed he had suffered a back injury but may have been seen working out with heavy weights as a gym, has been charged with committing workers compensation insurance fraud resulting in $57,000 in losses, prosecutors announced Monday. Matthew Tobolsky, 40, faces 14 counts including insurance fraud, filing a false claim, attempted perjury and failing to disclose information that affects a payment, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
An unauthorized immigrant accused of drunken driving and causing a crash in San Ysidro that seriously injured a 6-year-old boy will be tried a second time on felony charges including hit and run, a prosecutor said Monday. Constantino “Manuel” Banda Acosta, 39, went to trial last month in Chula Vista Superior Court on felony and misdemeanor charges, but the jury deadlocked on the three most serious counts stemming from the May 6 collision.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
