Rapper Juelz Santana Charged With Trying To Bring Loaded Gun On Plane

Juelz Santana

It wasn't clear if he's retained an attorney regarding the weapons and drug possession charges he's facing.

Police believed he fled the airport in a taxicab.

As he was waiting for his bag to be screened, James allegedly asked that TSA examine the bag quickly because he was going to miss his flight to San Francisco, prosecutors said. Carl Cifaldi of the borough police said that no one was home when police arrived.

But that's not the only brush with law enforcement the "There it Go (The Whistle Song)" performer has had in New Jersey. He is slated to make a federal court appearance Monday afternoon in Newark.

A TSA agent spotted what looked like a firearm in James' bag and called Port Authority police. Police found two loaded 9 mm handguns, an unspecified amount of ammunition, and 17 plastic bags containing suspected marijuana and drug paraphernalia, according to an article in The Record. The arrest culminated a 10-month investigation into gang activity, they said. James was also charged in 2011 for assault.

He was sentenced to two years of probation for each of those offenses in 2013.

A Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman said agents noticed the firearm in the bag passing through an X-ray at a security checkpoint.

Santana then fled the airport and was said to have gotten into a taxi after TSA found the gun, which was a.38 caliber, in his luggage, along with his passport and ID.
