NEW YORK (AP) — A woman from a wealthy New York City suburb has pleaded guilty to running a multimillion-dollar marijuana-growing operating in a Queens warehouse.
Andrea Sanderlin of Scarsdale admitted Tuesday in Brooklyn federal court that she operated the facility between 2009 and 2013.
In a statement, she said the operation grew at least 1,000 pot plants and that it "sold the marijuana product from the plants."
Her arrest in May sparked comparisons to the TV series "Weeds." The show chronicled a fictional California woman's attempt to support her family by raising marijuana.
Sanderlin, a 45-year-old mother of three, is out on $500,000 bail. She faces 10 years in prison at sentencing.
