In August 2020, state police raided a Savoy home, after its heavy use of electricity drew suspicion.

More than two years later, its owner, Bin Huang, pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and received two years of probation — along with forfeiting $11,138 in cash found in the house at 72 Jackson Road and the building and property itself. Huang had originally been charged with marijuana trafficking of more than 100 pounds but less than 2,000 pounds. State police said in 2020 they seized 3,598 cannabis plants at the house, weighing 560 pounds, worth more than $3 million on the street.

Huang was ordered to clean up the property — which he bought for $200,000 in 2017 — to the state's satisfaction. The Eagle visited the property to document its appearance. The order requires that Huang remove all materials, inside and out. That had not happened as of Friday.

Huang also agreed to surrender 40 percent of the cash in a Chase bank account. That account was said during court proceedings to have a balance of $101,000.  

Meantime, two men found by police at the site in 2020, Deming Wu and Yebin Mai, stand accused of trafficking in marijuana and operating what the state termed a "large-scale illegal marijuana cultivation operation." They deny having committed crimes and will go to trial next July, in proceedings assisted by a Cantonese interpreter. Mai is accused of trying to bribe an Eversource employee.
