*Rapper Juelz Santana has pleaded not guilty to drug and gun charges after briefly being on the run from an incident last week at Newark Liberty International Airport, reports Billboard.

Santana, real name LaRon James, entered his plea in Newark on Wednesday to two state weapons charges and a drug possession charge. His next court hearing is scheduled for April 9.

Authorities say security discovered a loaded .38-caliber handgun and oxycodone pills he didn’t have a prescription for in a carry-on bag containing his identification last Friday. He then fled the area, leaving behind two bags.

The 36-year-old New York City-born rapper turned himself in on Monday.

Santana also faces federal charges stemming from the same incident and is being jailed while the case proceeds.
