Juelz Santana Arrested on Drugs and Gun Charges

Published February 2, 2011

The hip-hop police is definitely keeping busy these days.


Juelz Santana was arrested yesterday in New Jersey on four counts of narcotic and gun possession. According to the Bergen County Prosecutor, the charges were brought up as a result of a 10-month probe by their Office Gang Unit.

Cops raided the Dipset rapper’s Jersey recording studio this past Saturday and found two 9 millimiter handguns, ammunition, 17 bags and drug paraphernalia. Skull Gang associate Toby M. Raynor was taken into custody after allegedly selling drugs to an undercover cop. His bail was set at $50,000.

The incident marks the second hip-hop-related raid in roughly two months. Cops raided Waka Flocka’s Atlanta home in December under suspicion of prostitution. Gucci Mane, who was at the house at the time, was detained and later released and producer Lex Luger’s little brother was arrested. Waka was on the road at the time of the raid, but turned himself in roughly a week later.
