18-year-old Brandon Ostein Jr. drove his mother’s 2022 Nissan Sentra to Hillsboro High School on Hillsboro Pike on the morning of February 7th. The School Security Officer James conducted “random air sniffs” of vehicles on school property when his K-9 “Dezi” was alerted by the Sentra. The registration returned belonging to Ostein Jr.’s mother, Jamie Dean. Staff requested that Ostein Jr. unlock the car for a search; however, Ostein Jr. refused. When staff advised him that he would be expelled from the school if he did not allow entry to the Sentra, Ostein Jr. fled the campus. When officers arrived, they noticed a strong odor of marijuana coming from the Nissan. Officers then found small amounts of a green leafy substance, later identified as marijuana, in plain view throughout the vehicle. While on the scene, Demetria Stuart, Ostein Jr.’s aunt, claimed the Sentra was hers, wanting to pick it up. His aunt explained that she usually drives it, but Ostein Jr. took it this morning by mistake. Then, his aunt told officers that she may have a Glock 9mm pistol with a laser in the car, which she did have a carry permit for. The Sentra was towed to the MNPD lot, and a subsequent search of it resulted in the discovery of a Glock 17 pistol with a laser and a 24-round magazine under the driver’s seat. As well as about .5 grams of marijuana, one 9mm shell casing, and four gaming dice. Ostein Jr. was taken into custody for simple possession and for having a weapon on school property on February 16th.
