Geo Search through REST API


Is Geo search supported in the REST search endpoint? Or do all geosearch queries have to be ripped apart to extract the geosearch terms and plug them into the geocode parameter?

For example, passing the following geosearch into the search field on a twitter client returns an expected number of results.
#btv geocode:44.467186,-73.214804,200km

Passing the same string in as the query returns no results.

Is this expected behavior for the REST GET search/tweets?
