SCARSDALE - A Scarsdale woman accused of running a lucrative marijuana-growing operation has been indicted on federal drug charges.

Police arrested 45-year-old Andrea Sanderlin back on May 20 for allegedly running a multi-million dollar drug business in Queens. On Tuesday, she appeared in court, where prosecutors blasted her behavior as a parent of three.

According to federal investigators, Sanderlin had been growing marijuana since February 2009. Detectives began investigating after getting a tip from a former associate and noticing electric bills exceeding $9,000 per month.

Officials say they believe the marijuana was meant for distribution in the New York area.

If convicted, Sanderlin faces up to $10 million in fines and a minimum of 10 years in prison.
