(PIX11) — The Scarsdale mom busted for allegedly running a $3 million marijuna ring will have a bail hearing Friday in Brooklyn federal court.

Andrea Sanderlin, 45, was arrested on May 20 for allegedly running  the marijuana operation out of a New York City warehouse, and was indicted two weeks later. She has been in jail since police charged her with narcotics trafficking, and she is facing a minimum of 10 years in prison.

She allegedly managed to stay under the radar for five years, until the cops received a tip from a man who calls himself a  former associate.

The man informed the police that there was a grower who lived in Scarsdale and drove a Mercedes Benz SUV. After officials linked this information — and a suspicious warehouse in Queens — to Sanderlin, they raided the warehouse and found more than 3,000 pot plants.
