Address Locator does not always find address if not searching with street type

Hello!

 

I am having a big problem with my address locator that I have been trying to make, I'm hoping someone can help.

 

I have a dual-range locator based off of my centerline data. If I use it to search "100 Main" it will easily find "100 Main St". However, with some streets, if I do not add the type at the end of it, it simply will not find the address. So far this only seems to be happening with one street that we know of, named Rincon St. When I do a search for "2100 Rincon" it comes back with nothing. If I search for "2100 Rincon St" it will give me a match. This is true for all addresses on this streets with 9 different segments. Any ideas as to why this is happening? It doesn't happen when I create the locator with the 9.2 version of the locators, but those bring up even worse bugs.

 

This locator is used by our emergency dispatch, so I can't easily ask them to just start using the street types all of the time, they need to work fast and it's unrealistic that they can memorize every street in the city like that.

 

Thanks!
