carro forte = armored car

 

revistar = to search, to pat down

 

Fred drives a Brinks armored car.  (You and I know it's a truck, but it's called a car in this usage.) 

 

We need to search the prisoners for possible weapons.

I patted him down and found a knife taped to his thigh.

 

To do/conduct a strip search = to search someone who is naked/nude (common practice when a prisoner is entering a jail or prison)

To do/conduct a cavity search = to search the "cavities" in a person's bodies (the mouth, the nose, the ears, the.....)
