How to use rummage in a sentence?

  1. Kevin Brady:

    Civil liberties and privacy still matters in America. No party in any Congress should have the authority to rummage around in your tax returns purely for political reasons and if they can do that to The President, what stops them from doing that to any political enemy.

  2. Pete Cunningham:

    If I want to buy a new house then I can go around and I can check to see whether there is damp patches around or whether the current owners have painted over and tried to hide any issues with leaks or damp patches, so that's another great example, also silly things like I'm going into the bakers and getting the freshest bread, you can point the phone up and identify where the freshest bread is. Or I let my dog out in the evening and it's pitch black, so now I can find my dog without having to chase around and rummage in bushes.

  3. Carole Scofield:

    Carole Scofield told the news station Carole Scofield thinks this is the second time this same bear has broken into their home looking for food. The first time it broke down their front door. In total, the couple said they have had trouble with bears on six different occasions during the 20 years they’ve lived in South Lake Tahoe. Lesa Johnston, with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, told KOLO8 that bears normally rummage through trash cans in search of food, but they're also known to look elsewhere. At some point in the bears' life, they gain some type of food reward by breaking in a cabin or a home, so they remember that, so the behavior is likely to be repeated, Lesa Johnston said. We are very lucky, both major break-ins, we were very lucky. I know a lot of people have not been. It has been very, very costly.
