Authorities say Juelz Santana turned himself into Port Authority Police early Monday and is due to appear in U.S. District Court in Newark later in the day. It wasn’t clear if he’s retained an attorney regarding the weapons and drug possession charges he’s facing.

Santana had been sought since Friday, when a loaded .38-caliber handgun was found in a bag passing through an X-ray at a Newark Liberty International Airport security checkpoint. Authorities have said Santana then fled the area, leaving two bags behind.
