Taste of china reopens after roach problems

Roach problems prompted state regulators to close Taste of China for two days last week. Inspection reports from the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation showed 100 dead roaches on the floor and on shelves at the restaurant at 13710 Little Road. One glue trap had 10 dead roaches in it, the report said. Inspectors also noted 20 live roaches under a freezer, 10 live roaches under a reach-in cooler and five live roaches under a prep table, according to the report. The restaurant was shut down on Feb. 27 and allowed to reopen March 1. No violations were found that day. Jessica Tien, the attorney for the restaurant, said the roaches were the kind that live outdoors and got in when a back door was left open. She said a pest control company came and got rid of the roaches and is on a monthly contract.

Bus video shows boy throw bottle

While passing a bus Wednesday afternoon, a car's windshield exploded. Glass shattered over the passenger, slicing her elbow. Deputies traced the cause back to a 12-year-old boy and a Gatorade bottle. The bus was headed from Thomas E. Weightman Middle School. A video taken from the bus' surveillance camera shows the boy, whose name is not being released due to his age, holding the "almost full" bottle, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. He motioned for the girl sitting next to him to put down the window, the report states. At Overpass and McKendree roads, he covered his head with the hood of his sweatshirt and chucked the bottle out, the report said. Deputies interviewed four students who witnessed the crime and later arrested the boy. He was taken to the juvenile detention center on charges of criminal mischief and throwing a deadly missile.
