In 2014, Sta. Isabel and his wife reported P20,366,000 million in their statement of assets liabilities and net worth.
This was according to PNP Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CDIG) chief Director Roel Obusan.
The following year, the couple reported more than P17,328,000 in assets.
“As the financial aspect of the financial investigation on the spouses Sta. Isabel, we first get into the SALN as the fundamental of everything,” Obusan said.
“For 2105, Sta Isabel has an asset of P14.443 million. For the real properties and personal properties amounting to P2,885,000—amounting to a total of P17,328,000.”
Among their properties, according to Obusan, were 5 house and lots and a 4-storey commercial building.
However, Sta. Isabel said that he only earns around P8,000 per month as a cop. He justified his wealth to the businesses of his wife, Jinky, who runs insurance commissions, Western Union, Bayad Center, and Lotto outlets.
“Iyung misis ko po talaga ang nagpapatakbo ng business namin. Gumraduate po iyung misis ko sa MLQU, cum laude po, kaya magaling po si misis at saka masipag po,” Sta Isabel said.
