NEW YORK (AP) — A woman from a wealthy New York suburb is accused of growing and attempting to sell nearly 3,000 marijuana plants from a city warehouse.

A federal complaint says Andrea Sanderlin, of Scarsdale, operated a warehouse in Queens that contained a "sophisticated operation to grow and process marijuana."

The complaint was filed May 20 by a Drug Enforcement Administration agent. A DEA spokeswoman said Wednesday that the 2,800 marijuana plants would have been worth $3 million on the street.

Sanderlin's attorney, Joel Winograd, did not return phone or email messages Tuesday night or Wednesday.

The complaint says agents with a search warrant entered the warehouse and found two rooms designed to grow marijuana. It says each had state-of-the-art lighting, irrigation and ventilation systems.
