Rapper Juelz Santana, who police say fled after a loaded gun was found in his bag at a Newark Liberty Airport checkpoint, is considering turning himself in, a source familiar with the investigation said Sunday. As previously reported, they had found an unconcealed firearm in his luggage.

Rapper Juelz Santana bolted from Newark Airport after he was caught trying to get a gun through security Friday. Then again, Santana is hard pressed to forget his prior felony conviction, which outlaws him from carrying a weapon, much less aboard a flight.

According to law enforcement, Santana underwent a security screening at 6 p.m. EST when the agents discovered the gun in his bag. The gun was detected and Santana ran from the airport, possibly jumping in a cab.

No arrests have been made as the search for Santana, whose real name is LaRon Louis James, continues.

According to sources, the Harlem rapper attempted to go through security at Terminal C with a gun.

Santana, a founding member of the rap group "The Diplomats", has been living since past year on Totowa's Hamilton Trail, a street lined with stately, three-story homes, according to neighbors. It was a loaded.38-caliber handgun.
