    The legal term arrest carries always the implication of a legal offense; this is true even of arresting for debt. But one may be detained by process of law when no offense is alleged against him, as in the case of a witness who is held in a house of detention till a case comes to trial. One may be restrained of his liberty without arrest, as in an insane asylum; an individual or corporation may be restrained by injunction from selling certain property. In case of an arrest, an officer may secure his prisoner by fetters, by a locked door, or other means effectually to prevent escape. Capture is commonly used of seizure by armed force; as, to capture a ship, a fort, etc. Compare HINDER; OBSTRUCT.

How to use capture in a sentence?

  1. John Carey:

    The trade situation is worrisome but nothing more is going to happen right away. This story may recede in people's consciousness while current stories capture people's interests, particularly earnings, people are looking for some fairly strong earnings, and there's certainly potential for disappointment.

  2. Shawn DuBravac:

    I've been talking with electronics manufacturers since the end of January and they were already spinning up resources to monitor it and address it, a lot of it is around information capture — let me increase the frequency in which I'm talking to my suppliers so I can prepare my downstream customers. At the same time, I'm going to try to find some other suppliers and talk to my customers and see if there's alternatives that they are aware of or are willing to do.

  3. Pastor Nelson:

    Cameras capture him trying to get in and on the sanctuary door, he bangs on it and pulls on it and he backs up, put his hand on the gun. So whoever would've opened it would have possibly have gotten shot and killed.

    We may do well to be attentive to the good and the bad vibrations in life. Since elephants use their feet to listen to vibrations and thus capture significant codes of impending peril, they might coach humans and teach them how to become “surefooted” in hazardous times. Keeping feet on the ground, however, should not hinder us from flying high and reaching soaring heights. ("Trompe le pied.")

  5. Matthew Stevenson:

    High capital cost is currently a barrier to widespread deployment of carbon capture.
