CEBU CITY, Philippines — Four people were arrested for various offenses in Cebu on Wednesday, January 9.

The arrest warrant was issued by Judge Roslyn Tria of the Regional Trial Court Branch 94 of the National Capital Region.

She, however, was released after she paid a P2,000 bail for her temporary freedom.

At past 1 p.m., Emilda Antigua, 46, of Sitio Santa Cruz, Barangay Antipolo in Medellin town in northern Cebu, was arrested after she was served a warrant of arrest for not attending a hearing of an estafa case.
