VENTURA — A “known gang member” is behind bars, accused of carjacking and shooting a dog in Somis, according to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department.

Sheriff’s deputies say the carjacking victim, John Beaudion, 56, of Camarillo, was driving his BMW in the 7400 block of Bradley Road in Somis when he stopped his car to remove some brush blocking the road Sunday morning.

The suspect, Gerardo Sillas, 28, of Fillmore, emerged from the brush and pointed a handgun at Beaudion, deputies said. The suspect then demanded Beaudion’s wallet and car. After the suspect drove away, Beaudion caleld 911 with his cell phone.

Sillas lost control of the car a short time later and crashed in the 8000 block of Balcom Canyon Road. He then took off on foot, deputies said.

After deputies found the car in a field off Balcom Canyon Road, they received a call from a resident nearby who said his dog had been shot.

Authorities said they believe Sillas shot the dog shortly after crashing the car. The dog’s wounds did not appear to be life-threatening.

A 17-year-old man who was working in a field on Posita Road said Sillas brandished a gun at him.

Another 911 call then came in to report “a man with a gun” at the end of Posita Road. Deputies and California Highway Patrol officers caught up with Sillas, disarmed and arrested him.

Sillas was booked into county jail on charges of carjacking, robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, kidnapping, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, brandishing a weapon, cruelty to an animal and resisting arrest.

Because he is considered a known Fillmore gang member, he was also booked for street terrorism.

    RETARD, you deserve jail. You should be ashamed of yourself for breathing.

    Hahaha. You think he gives rats-behind what you think. People use the word “retard” too much when it’s not needed. Show a little humility.
