Scarsdale 'Pot Mom' Pleads Guilty To Federal Drug Charges

SCARSDALE, N.Y. - Scarsdale 'Pot Mom' Andrea Sanderlin pleaded guilty to federal charges Monday, admitting she grew at least 1,000 marijuana plants and sold the drug, the Daily News reported.

Sanderlin appeared at Brooklyn Federal Court before Magistrate Robert Levy.

She faces a 10-year minimum sentence and a maximum of life in prison, the story said.

Sanderlin told people she was an interior designer or baby furniture saleswoman while she set up a front company called “Fantastic Enterprises” that was based out of a Queens warehouse, police said.

Sanderlin rented a four-bedroom, five-bathroom home on Saxon Woods Road in the village, where she routinely kept large amounts of cash and books on money laundering and pot growing, police said. The Drug Enforcement Agency got wind of Sanderlin's quiet operation after her friend and fellow Scarsdale resident Stephen Haberstroh was busted as part of another pot-ring in April, according to the report. Another suspect in that case talked to the feds about someone referred to as "Andi." Authorities started tailing Sanderlin, who they saw use large amounts of cash to buy items from a Brooklyn garden that authorities say could be used in a marijuana grow house. According to reports, Sanderlin was compared to a Colombian drug kingpin when the indictment was announced.
