Alleged Scarsdale pot mom granted bond; released

The mother of two from Westchester County who is accused of running a million-dollar marijuana operation has been granted bond and was released Monday.

Andrea Sanderlin was granted $500,000 bond and is expected to wait for trial at the apartment of her kids grandparents in New York City.

Sanderlin walked out of federal court in Brooklyn shortly after 6 p.m. Monday.

She was escorted by her lawyer and an unidentified man. They got into a silver Mercedes SUV.

She nor her lawyer answered any questions. She is staying in a Manhattan apartment owned by her children's paternal grandparents. Her next court date is July 15th at 11 a.m.

She will be watched via electronic monitoring.

Sanderlin is also accused of holding thousands of dollars of cash in her home.

Sanderlin's nanny was also arrested after Sanderlin's boyfriend reportedly called the nanny and told her to gather as much cash as she could from the couple's closet. She managed to collect about $8,000 before being stopped by police herself.

And the sprawling Scarsdale mansion that Sanderlin moved into about six months ago reportedly cost between $11,000 and $12,000 a month in rent, all in cash.

It's an expense authorities say she could afford, since her alleged grow house in Queens contained 3,000 pot plants worth an estimated $3 million.

Agents say she may have tried to grow marijuana at two other New York City warehouses, as well. All three locations had exorbitantly high electricity bills consistent with growing weed, and all three were in Sanderlin's name.

Sanderlin's nanny was also arrested after Sanderlin's boyfriend reportedly called the nanny and told her to gather as much cash as she could from the couple's closet. She managed to collect about $8,000 before being stopped by police herself.
