Juelz Santa To Remain In Jail On Weapons Charges, After Bringing Loaded Gun To Airport
Juelz Santana (real name LaRon James) is behind bars, at least for now. The 36-year-old rapper will remain jailed pending a hearing on weapons charges stemming from a gun found in a bag at New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport.
On Monday, Santana, who is dating former Love & Hip Hop New York star Kimbella, made an initial court appearance in federal court in Newark. He had turned himself in to authorities earlier Monday, three days after security personnel at the airport found a loaded .38-caliber handgun in a carry-on bag containing his identification.
Authorities say Santana had fled the area, leaving two bags behind. A judge has ordered Santana to remain in custody until a preliminary hearing scheduled for March 26.
Santana’s rep has yet to comment.
