As we reported yesterday, Juelz Santana was arrested yesterday in connection with a raid on his studio earlier this month. Police had been looking for the rapper since January 20th.
He was charged with "possession of a firearm, possession of a handgun without a permit, possession of a controlled dangerous substance and possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school."
If you want a breakdown of what Juelz had, cops say they found two loaded 9mm handguns in the studio, along with 17 small bags of marijuana. They also claim Juelz is a member of the feared Bloods street gang, which is the biggest street gang in New Jersey.
Juelz Santana, aka Laron James, was taken to Bergen County Jail in Hackensack on $125,000 bail.
“We are hopeful that my Brother will be released tonight. He is just being processed through the system right now. I posted his bail earlier today. All computers are currently down at the Prosecutor’s Office," said Jermaine "Twin" James, Juelz's older brother and manager.

Falling in love with a drug dealer may not be good for your image as actress/singer Drew Sidora is finding out.
Drew's name has been mentioned in a federal drug case involving a variety of shady Baltimore men, accused of shipping hundreds of kilos of cocaine from Southern California to Baltimore.
Drew, who has recently appeared on "The Game," had been dating Ricky Brascom, one of the owners of Behind Da Scenes Entertainment, a label that promotes Chicago rapper Paypa. They claim Ricky used private jets to import over 400 kilos of cocaine into the city of Baltimore (a street value of $4 million).
After months of wiretapping Ricky's phone conversations, police heard Drew telling him she feared he may be arrested because of what he does.
While Drew has not been charged with any crime, her name is now being associated with the shady underworld of Baltimore, which won't be a good look at the NAACP Image Awards. I know folks don't make the best decisions when they are in love, but I hope Drew gets it together and realizes she is too talented and pretty to associate herself with the underworld.
UPDATE: Drew Sidora has released an official statement about the incident:
"I live my life believing that when you do good, God continues to bless you. Like many young women who fall in love, we trust our partners and pray that they live a life based on the principles of morality and integrity, I never knew of his activities and as soon as I became aware, the relationship ended. I continue to pray for him and his family and anyone else that was affected by he and his partners actions. Right now, I am focused and overjoyed with happiness of pending motherhood. I will continue to be an advocate for initiatives that promote education, the wellness and stability of our youth, families and communities."
