After leading Modesto police on a slow-speed pursuit through the Vintage Faire Mall parking lot Thursday night and then driving the wrong way on Sisk Road, a suspect was found by Stanislaus County sheriff's deputies at a Salida motel and arrested. Even that was not simple, according to the police report on the case. When sheriff's deputies contacted Santiago Casas at the motel, he refused to comply with commands, Modesto Police Department spokeswoman Heather Graves said.
A 34-year-old Modesto man faces a life sentence in prison after being convicted Thursday of second-degree murder in a hit-and-run crash that occurred the summer of 2015. That collision killed 19-year-old Nenar Zaia of Modesto. Luiz Miguel Ortega, who was identified in early reports as Luis Ortega, was convicted after a two-week Stanislaus County Superior Court jury trial of second-degree murder, gross vehicular manslaughter with intoxication, and hit-and-run with death, all felonies.
Beyer High School has pulled out of presenting the Every 15 Minutes DUI-awareness program this school year, according to the California Highway Patrol. The two-day program, which includes graphic crash-scene re-enactments and students painted with death faces to represent lives lost, was to have been on campus March 22-23, said CHP Modesto-area office spokesman Officer Thomas Olsen. Some schools in Stanislaus County present the program just every four years, some every other year, Olsen said.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
