NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Port Authority Police Department is searching for rapper Juelz Santana.

Sources tell CBS2 TSA agents discovered a loaded gun in the recording artist’s bag as he went through screening at Newark Liberty International Airport’s Terminal C around 6 pm Friday.

When the gun was detected, the 36-year-old Harlem native reportedly took off running and may have jumped into a cab.

Representatives for Santana haven’t returned a message seeking comment.

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