Juelz Santana will be prosecuted by federal authorities.

Juelz Santana will be prosecuted by federal authorities on gun and drug charges after fleeing from Newark Liberty International Airport earlier this month when TSA agents reportedly found a .38-caliber handgun and unprescribed oxycodone pills in his carry-on bag.

According to Associated Press, the 36-year-old rapper faced both state and federal charges with the case, but Essex County prosecutors dismissed the state charges this week, defering to federal authorities.

A plea in the federal proceedings hasn’t been made.

Last week, U.S. Magistrate Judge James B. Clark III denied Juelz Santana’s bail request.

The “Oh Boy” rapper had pleaded not guilty to state charges, but turned himself in three days after fleeing from the scene.

He remains jailed pending further hearings.
