Scarsdale mother Andrea Sanderlin, who is facing charges of operating a sophisticated multi-million dollar marijuana growing business in Queens, is moving out of her fancy address on Saxon Woods Road in this tony Westchester community.
Her attorney Joel Winograd said Wednesday morning that she “had received notice from her landlord that he would be seeking a new tenant.” Winograd added that Sanderlin remains in a federal facility in Brooklyn and held without bail.
She was indicted by a federal grand jury in Brooklyn on charges of manufacturing and possessing marijuana with intent to distribute. If convicted, she faces 10 years in prison and $10 million in fines.
“We plan to enter a plea of not guilty when the arraignment takes place,” the lawyer said.
The house at 193 Saxon Woods Road that Sanderlin, 45, had been renting for her and her two daughters ages 3 and 13, is currently listed as available. The monthly rent is $13,500, according to numerous real estate websites.
The listing agency is Houlihan Lawrence based in Scarsdale and the office manager did not immediately return a phone call Wednesday morning for additional details.
The 11-room house has 5 bedrooms and five bathrooms. It features a grand entrance staircase, polished hardwood floors and marble master bathroom in a total of 5,438-square-feet . The home is a colonial style built in 2009 and with a current market value of about $2.3 million.
The house, it should be noted, has not been connected to her alleged marijuana production operation and listing photographs show it as very pristine and well cared for.
Winograd said his” client and her family will be moving out shortly.”
She was arrested by federal agents on May 20 as she reached the warehouse building in Queens where authorities discovered $3 million worth of marijuana plant. They described the operation as a state-of-the-art growing facility that included lighting, ventilation and irrigation systems.
