    Soccer Mom Ran Massive Pot-Grow Operation :D

    JUNE 4--A suburban mom--and budding equestrian--has for years maintained a secret life as the alleged head of a multimillion-dollar marijuana grow operation that was finally broken up last month when federal agents raided a New York City warehouse and discovered nearly 3,000 pot plants and state-of-the-art cultivation equipment, The Smoking Gun has learned.

    Andrea Sanderlin, 45, was arrested two weeks ago outside a Queens building housing a ?sophisticated operation to grow and process marijuana,? according to a Drug Enforcement Administration agent. During the May 20 raid, investigators seized about 2800 pot plants, ?large quantities of dried marijuana,? and ?lighting, irrigation and ventilation systems.?

    Sanderlin was subsequently named in a criminal complaint charging her with narcotics trafficking, a felony carrying a minimum 10-year prison term. Since her arrest, Sanderlin--who allegedly ran her marijuana business through a front company called ?Fantastic Enterprises, Inc.?--has been locked up at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn.

    The DEA?s arrest of Sanderlin--an attractive, divorced mother of two girls (ages 3 and 13) who lives in Scarsdale, New York--will likely draw comparisons to the Showtime series ?Weeds,? which starred Mary-Louise Parker as the sexy young matriarch of the hydroponic pot-distributing Botwin family.

    Joel Winograd, Sanderlin's lawyer, described her as a ?full-time mother? who had no criminal record and has ?never been in trouble before.? Winograd added that he is seeking to work out a bail package for his client, who has pleaded not guilty to the trafficking charge.

    When federal agents searched Sanderlin's home, they recovered about $6,000. in cash and books on money laundering and growing marijuana, according to a U.S. District Court filing. They also seized $7,900. from Sanderlin's nanny, who was trying to sneak the cash to Sanderlin's boyfriend (who is the father of her youngest daughter).

    The raid on Sanderlin?s home came as a shock to neighbors not accustomed to the presence of armed federal agents in the leafy Westchester County village, which is among the country?s wealthiest communities.

    Sanderlin, who leases her Saxon Woods Road residence--four bedrooms/five bathrooms/5438 square feet--is often seen behind the wheel of her Mercedes-Benz SUV (though she once had a Maserati coupe registered in her name).

    What triggered the initial raid on the NYC warehouse? Did someone snitch? I've flirted with the idea of spearheading a real life blackhat operation so these stories interest me.

    Edit: Lol I was right. Someone snitched:

    So the feds are making a big deal out of this...huh!

    Strange world we live in, if the world was not so screwed up the lady arguably would not have committed any crime she would be doing as they do in Holland (where marijuana is legal) providing a user service...
