Juelz Santana Arrested After Drug Raid, Bail Set At $125K

The Dipset rapper is busted for drugs and weapons after police raided his New Jersey studio.

Juelz Santana was arrested on Wednesday after police found marijuana and weapons in his New Jersey recording studio last month. He was taken into custody on four counts of narcotic and weapons charges.

According to Bergen County police officials, who had been investigating Santana for 10 months, two fully loaded handguns, ammunition, and 17 Ziploc bags of "a greenish brown vegetation consistent with the appearance of marijuana," were found during the raid. Santana has been charged with possession of a handgun without having a permit, possession with intent to distribute a controlled dangerous substance within 1,000 feet of a school zone, and two other similar counts.  His bail is set at $125,000.

After the raid last month, the Dipset member told Chicago's Power 92, "It's been some legal issue, I know it's been all over the Internet. Police ran up in my studio. I had to deal with that and a couple of things." He also said he felt as if he was being targeted by police officials. "They always picking on me. That's the best way I can put it. But by the graces of God, everything should be OK. I wasn't caught with anything in my possession."

Santana has not yet made bail, and it is not clear if and when he will.

    It makes sense that Juelz may be broke. think about it. - he stays on the mixtapes, but never really releases an album (mix tapes are strictly for buzz not money) - Cam and his old management take a huge chunk of his royalty checks from his last successful album and all the dipset albums. he even admits that he signed a fucked up deal with Cam the 1st time around - he's not a big enough act to fill an arena so he's mostly a night club act. so ima guess that he probably makes about 10-20G's a show (20-30Gs if there is a big event going on like the Allstar game or something like that. - he probably does about 2-3 shows a month, maybe more during the summer time and less during the winter. so his yearly income from rap, before taxes, is probably around $300k-$400k. he pays his taxes, then he's making less than that, if he doesn't pay (or doesn't pay it all like most rappers do), then those number should be about right. - in order to live the way he raps, he probably spends about $150k+ a year just on lifestyle, and i'm sure his baby moms, his manager, and his peoples probably eat into some of that money too so in the end, juelz HAS to sell drugs to maintain the life, because rap money aint enough. i'm sure he was just hoping that he could hustle for a couple more months, at least until the next dipset album comes out and he can go out on tour with dipset and make that real money opening up for Cashmoney, Rick Ross or someone big

    Jersey has the toughest gun laws in the country. He can forget about it. It's over. That gun charge alone is going to get him 2-5. Especially with the arrest of the kid Hynief two weeks ago when they raided. He's fighting an attempted murder charge and a drug charge. He's done. The Dips have been getting locked up at an alarming rate. They caught the dude who had a 13 year old kill a 15 year old over mix tapes. He was they hitman. Once he got popped the cops were all over the Dips ass. They should have known that. This investigation started shortly after his arrest.

    Victimless crimes are not crimes. Weed doesn't hurt anyone and guns don't kill people. People kill people. Ron Paul for president. Free Juelz.
