SCARSDALE - A Scarsdale mother of two pleaded not guilty today to charges she ran a multimillion-dollar pot operation in Queens.

Authorities say Andrea Sanderlin, 45, had $3 million worth of pot plants in the warehouse. Federal investigators stormed the facility back in May after being tipped off by the sky-high electrical bills that exceeded $9,000. 

Sanderlin allegedly used the money she received from the operation to fuel her lavish lifestyle that included luxury cars and a palatial home on Saxon Woods Road.

Sanderlin's attorneys are working on presenting a bail package to the court. As of now, Sanderlin remains behind bars.

Sanderlin's children are staying with relatives. She is expected back in court for a status conference on July 15.
