    a canvassing crew turned up a news vendor.

    Smith: An hour ago, a canvassing crew turned up a news vendor...who saw a maroon Merc parked across from the Nite Owl around 1 a.m. DMV has come up with a registration list of Merc coupes.

    What does "a canvassing crew turned up a news vendor" mean?
    Does it mean canvassing crew turned into a news vendor team?

    Turned up = "found".
