Thousands of marijuana plants seized in Savoy; two NY men arrested (copy)

State police recovered nearly 3,600 marijuana plants worth more than $3 million in a home in Savoy in 2020. 

PITTSFIELD — When an Eversource worker checked on an electrical problem at 72 Jackson Road in Savoy a couple years back, he found wires to the electric meter box had melted.

It was evidence a fire had broken out in the meter box, affixed to a home whose electric bill amounted to about $10,000 per month.
