Contreras took his firearm with him over the border without realizing that his valid Belizean gun license meant nothing in Guatemala, which requires everyone to have a Guatemalan-issued license to carry firearms.
Guatemalan police doing random searches in the area came upon Contreras, who was relaxing in a park.
He was immediately detained and is expected to be charged today.
