SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - A week of raids by San Bernardino County deputies eliminated 93 illegal marijuana greenhouses and resulted in arrests of 15 people, the Sheriff’s Department said.

Search warrants were served at 18 locations in Lucerne Valley, San Gabriel, Wonder Valley, El Mirage, Twentynine Palms, and Adelanto.
