Originally published as a CHP South Sacramento Facebook post –
“On June 29, 2021, at approximately 8:00 am, a motorist was driving his Tesla Model Y on southbound Interstate 5 near Cosumnes River Boulevard when his right rear window suddenly broke.
The motorist drove to work and viewed the camera footage from the Tesla. The motorist was able to view a male driving a Nissan Rogue pull along his right side, raise some type of projectile, then continue driving southbound Interstate 5.
Officers from the South Sacramento CHP Area responded and upon further review of the video, a firearm was ruled out as the weapon involved. Further analysis of the video took place and a suspect was identified.
On July 7, 2021, at approximately 7 am, Investigators from the Valley Division Investigative Services Unit (ISU) along with Officers from the South Sacramento Area, served a search warrant on a Nissan Rogue SUV parked near the address of 4916 Don Julio Boulevard in the North Sacramento Area.
They encountered the suspect, 42-year-old Jose Eliseo Capacho Bonilla, sleeping within the vehicle. A search of the vehicle revealed two types of homemade contraptions used for shooting projectiles.
Also discovered were numerous BBs and 10 to 11 golf ball/marble sized rocks which had been shaped down into round balls. Damage was located within the vehicle consistent with projectiles being shot out of the vehicle.
Bonilla was arrested and charged with Felony Vandalism, Felony Assault with a Deadly Weapon, and Felony Throwing a Substance at a Vehicle/Occupant. Investigators believe Bonilla may have been responsible for similar incidents on local freeways and additional counts may be recommended. Video Credit~R. Glavan ”
