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. It wasn't clear if he's retained an attorney regarding the weapons and drug possession charges he's facing. They said authorities recovered a loaded Derringer.38-caliber handgun and that the suspect "is believed to have left Newark Airport by taxicab". Santana reportedly ran out of EWR Friday night after TSA agents found a handgun inside of his luggage.

Port of Authority officials did not discuss the investigation or speak on the condition of the situation because no arrests have been made.

The Dipset member was arrested and booked for unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a controlled unsafe substance. Each charge carries a maximum potential sentence of 10 years in prison. James has been prohibited from possessing a firearm since 2013, when he was convicted of manufacturing and distributing a controlled substance, officials said.

In a press release, police said during an autopsy conducted at Lourdes hospital, Anderson's cause of death was ruled a homicide. Police say a male nursing student at the university who had a previous relationship with the victim is a person of interest.

In 2016, a warrant was issued for his arrest after he reportedly owed almost $30,000 in child support. Carl Cifaldi of the borough police said that no one was home when police arrived.

Santana went on to make "What The Game's Been Missing!" containing perhaps his most famous single, "There it Go (The Whistle Song)". The album, which featured the track "Dipset (Santana's Town), topped the Billboard charts at No. 8". He was also featured in Chris Brown's "Run It!"
