It probably should be obvious that turning up the car radio when a cop asks you to turn it down at 12:45 a.m. will land you in handcuffs. That’s what happened to Eric Leith Malloy, 33, early Thursday in Fuquay-Varina. Police said Malloy was blaring music in his car outside his home on Lilac Lane. It’s not the first time neighbors have been unappreciative of Malloy’s musical offerings, according to a police report, but Thursday they asked for help. The report said that when Officer D.M.
A 28-year-old Raleigh man had come up with a way, with the unwitting help of Target, to turn funny money into the real thing, but Raleigh police vetoed his ingenuity with a series of arrest warrants they served Wednesday. Curtis Stuart Scarborough Jr., 28, was in custody already when Raleigh police served the warrants that charged him with three counts of having five or more counterfeit instruments and three counts of obtaining property by false pretense.
A Wake County 17-year-old turned himself in Tuesday to face charges from Wake County sheriff's investigators that he supplied a 9mm handgun and drove the car used in what officials said was a drive-by attempted murder earlier this month. Rictavion Eugene Lee was named in an arrest warrant that said he provided the gun that Brandon Dionta Harris, 17, is accused of using to shoot at Jamar Johnson while Johnson was on the porch of a house near Zebulon on Aug. 9.
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".
