Rapper Juelz Santana is reportedly considering turning himself in after fleeing New Jersey's Newark Liberty International Airport Friday (March 9) when TSA officials found a loaded gun in his bag. As previously reported, they had found an unconcealed firearm in his luggage.

Dipset's Juelz Santana is exhausted of running. Then again, Santana is hard pressed to forget his prior felony conviction, which outlaws him from carrying a weapon, much less aboard a flight. He will surrender around 9 a.m., according to a report from the South Passaic Daily Voice. 50 Cent also cracked a joke at the rapper's expense on Instagram.

Santana, a former Teaneck resident, submitted a carry-on bag for an X-ray inspection at the C-1 security checkpoint, which leads to airport gates in Terminal C, at 6:05 p.m. Friday. Juelz, whose given name is LaRon James, is believed to have fled the scene in a taxicab after a loaded weapon was found in his bag on Friday.
