NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A suburban mother faces federal drug charges for allegedly running a highly sophisticated marijuana growing operation out of a warehouse in Queens.
As WCBS 880’s Irene Cornell reported Tuesday, Andrea Sanderlin of Scarsdale in Westchester County is known to her neighbors as a skilled equestrian.
The mother of two daughters, ages 13 and 3, Sanderlin lives in a beautiful home in a highly sought-after town. Her neighbors told CBS 2’s Hazel Sanchez they were stunned by the news.
“It doesn’t seem like something you would see in this area of Scarsdale at all,” Jason Paris said.
Sanderlin, 45, was busted by agents of the Drug Enforcement Agency after they raided the business she operated under the name “Fantastic Enterprises.”
