WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A 39-year-old resident of Mexico who was living in Kansas has been sentenced to about five years in prison after pleading guilty to possessing weapons illegally.

The Wichita Eagle reports that Guadalupe Burciaga-Alcantar, who is from Ojinaga, Mexico, was arrested in October after a traffic stop in Sedgwick County. The U.S. Attorney's Office for Kansas says deputies found two loaded handguns in the pickup Burciaga was driving.

He pleaded guilty in December to the charge of an illegal alien in possession of a firearm. Federal law prohibits people unlawfully in the U.S. from possessing firearms.

He was sentenced Monday in federal court to 65 months in prison, followed by deportation to Mexico.
