A La Romaine couple who reaped ochroes 20 inches long are hoping to make it into the Guinness World Book of Records.
Parbatee and Harold Boodoo of Temple Street Duncan Village, San Fernando, planted the deer horn ochroes in their backyard garden six weeks ago but they never imagined that it would grow unusually long.
Ochroes usually grow to six to seven inches but on Sunday when Parbatee ventured to cut ochroes for a meal of crab and callaloo, she realized that one of the trees had an unusual bountiful harvest.
A Mt. St. George, Tobago man, recorded in a video which was later circulated online, in open confrontation with the police, now faces multiple charges including resisting arrest; assaulting a police officer and obstructing a police officer in the execution of his duties.
Joha Phillips, 29, a labourer of Back Street, Mt. St. George, who was also charged with escaping lawful custody and obscene language, pleaded guilty to the obscene language charge when he appeared before Magistrate Kurson Depradine, in the Scarborough 2nd Magistrates’ Court, on Friday 20th July, 2018.
