Juelz Santana Turns Himself in After Fleeing Airport Gun Bust

By TheBlast Staff

Juelz Santana was arrested early Monday morning after previously running away from an airport screening when TSA agents allegedly found a gun in his bag.

Port Authority officials tell The Blast that Santana (real name LaRon James) was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a controlled dangerous substance. He was also hit with a charge related to an unspecified federal warrant.

On Friday, Port Authority officials say Santana walked out the exit of a security checkpoint at Newark Airport, leaving two bags and his identification behind. When TSA checked the bag, they recovered a loaded firearm (a Derringer .38-caliber handgun, to be exact).

Authorities alleged Santana left the scene via cab.

Santana is expected to appear in federal court later today.
