From August 2020 to February 2021, Dylan Ostrum, age 29, Indianapolis, Indiana, conspired with others to distribute methamphetamine and marijuana in Indianapolis, Indiana. On February 3, 2021, investigators executed a search warrant at Ostrum’s Indianapolis residence, where they arrested Ostrum. Ostrum admitted to his involvement in drug trafficking but acknowledged that he had removed all contraband from his home after a trafficking associate had been arrested the previous week. Investigators later located Ostrum’s vehicle at a coconspirator’s residence and recovered a loaded 9mm pistol, an extended magazine, 513 grams of actual methamphetamine, marijuana, and a digital scale.

Zachary A. Myers, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Indiana and Daryl S. McCormick, Special Agent in Charge of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), Columbus Field Division made the announcement.

At the time of his arrest, Ostrum was on home detention after a previous felony conviction for possession of methamphetamine in Madison County, Indiana. Ostrum is prohibited from possessing a firearm due to his multiple previous felony convictions, including burglary and drug possession.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) investigated this case. The sentence was imposed by U.S. District Court Judge Sarah Evans Barker. Judge Barker also ordered that Ostrum be supervised by the U.S. Probation Office for 5 years following his release from federal prison.

U.S. Attorney Myers thanked Assistant United States Attorney’s Bradley A. Blackington and Michelle P. Brady, who prosecuted this case.
