A New Jersey prosecutor has dropped weapon and drug charges against rapper Juelz Santana were dropped Tuesday, but he remains in federal custody, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. 

The Essex County Prosecutor's Office dismissed weapons and drug charges against Santana, whose real name is LaRon James, a spokesperson said. The state is deferring the charges to federal prosecutors, who have already charged Santana. 

The Totowa resident was arrested on March 12, authorities said, after he turned himself in for allegedly having a gun and drugs in his luggage at Newark Liberty International Airport.

A message for Santana's lawyer Brian Neary was not returned.
