Rapper Juelz Santana is reportedly considering turning himself in after fleeing New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport Friday (March 9) when TSA ficials found a loaded gun in his bag.
A representative for Santana, whose real name is LaRon James, has been in contact with authorities to discuss surrendering, a source close to the investigation told NorthJersey.com, an affiliate the USA Today Network.
It was unclear Sunday if the rapper would be turning himself in. Port Authority police spokesman Joe Pentangelo reportedly said there had been “no developments” in the case, and no arrests have been made.
On Friday evening, Santana fled the airport and may have gotten into a taxi after TSA found a loaded .38-caliber handgun in his bag.
Billboard has reached out to Santana’s representatives for comment.
This isn’t the rapper’s first run-in with the law. In 2011, he was arrested at his New Jersey recording studio, where police discovered two loaded guns, ammunition, and drugs, according to The Record.
