The home of Maricopa County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy David Hendershott will be sold at a foreclosure auction in June, according to county records.

The 4,500-square-foot home in north Peoria is being sold to cover the balance of a $774,500 note Hendershott and his wife, Anna, took out on the home in 2006.

Hendershott and his wife originally bought the home in 2001.

County treasurer’s records indicate the home had a value of $493,500 according to 2009 tax records.

Hendershott oversees the day-to-day operations of the Sheriff’s Office, which has an annual budget of $270 million.

It’s not the first time Hendershott has encountered financial problems.

Public records show he and his wife filed for bankruptcy protection in 1986 and 1997, and they had tens of thousands of dollars in debt discharged. The couple also owed at least $69,766 in unpaid state and federal income taxes from 1986 to 1992, documents filed with the Maricopa County Recorder’s Office show. Hendershott blamed his tax problems on bad financial advice, and he said he eventually paid the debt. The state tax liens of $14,915 were released in 1995 and 1996, while the IRS liens of $54,851 were released in 1998.

Hendershott did not return a call for comment Friday morning.
