NEWARK, N.J. (WCBS 880) -- Rapper Juelz Santana will stay in jail pending a hearing on weapons charges, after a gun was found in a bag that allegedly belonged to him at Newark Liberty International Airport.

Santana faced a judge Monday in U.S. District Court in Newark, three days after a Transportation Security Administration agent found a .38-caliber handgun in a carry-on bag with his ID in it.

Authorities said Santana ran off from a security area leaving two bags behind. He later surrendered to authorities.

He will be held in jail until a court hearing on March 26.

Santana, 36, is a Harlem native and lives in New Jersey. His real name is LaRon James.
