Woman from wealthy NY suburb indicted on pot-growing charges a month after arrest

A woman from a ritzy New York suburb has been indicted on charges that she grew thousands of marijuana plants in a city warehouse.

The U.S. attorney in Brooklyn says Andrea Sanderlin of Scarsdale had a sophisticated pot-raising operation in the Maspeth section of Queens.

A call to Sanderlin's attorney, Joel Winograd, was not immediately returned.

Sanderlin, mother of two daughters, pleaded not guilty in May when she was arrested on a federal complaint. She has since been held without bail.

The complaint said she drove back and forth between her big house Scarsdale and the grow house in a Mercedes. Investigators discovered nearly 3,000 marijuana plants in the warehouse.

U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch said Tuesday the 45-year-old Sanderlin used drug money to maintain her upper-middle-class lifestyle.
