*Juelz Santana has been ordered to remain behind bars after surrendering to police on several gun charges.

The rapper, real name LaRon James, became a wanted man after fleeing from Newark International Airport on Friday, when a loaded firearm was allegedly discovered in his bag at a TSA checkpoint.

He turned himself in to cops at the Port Authority Police Department early Monday, and was booked for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and carrying a weapon on an aircraft, both of which carry a 10-year maximum sentence. He was also booked for unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of drugs, and on an unspecified federal warrant.

Santana, 36, appeared before Magistrate Judge Joseph Dickson on Monday afternoon and was remanded in federal custody pending his preliminary hearing on March 26, reports NJ.com.

Santana was previously convicted for manufacturing and selling drugs in 2013, which bans him from carrying a gun.
