Juelz Santana wanted by police after gun found in bag at airport

Juelz Santana, 36, reportedly turned himself in to the Newark, New Jersey authorities after an incident that occurred over the weekend.

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 unsafe substance.

Juelz Santana attends the 2013 BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards at Hammerstein Ballroom on August 22, 2013 in New York City.

While living in Teaneck in 2009, he was arrested after police said he threatened his girlfriend with a knife inside his home.

Santana is expected to appear in federal court later today.

A TSA agent spotted what looked like a firearm in James' bag and called Port Authority police.

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. James was also charged in 2011 for assault.

The Transportation Security Administration said in an email that one of its officers "froze the bag safely inside the X-Ray tunnel" after spotting the gun during routine screening. He fled the Newark Airport after he was busted trying to get a gun through security on Friday according to police sources.

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.
