A not-so-smart crook was caught red-handed with a badly forged driver’s license.

DA Raul Torrez says 41-year-old Russell Kimber handed police a drivers license with a 2018 birthday during a traffic stop in April.

Officers were immediately tipped off that the license was forged.

A search of his vehicle also led officers to meth and a gun.

Investigators say Kimber has a lengthy criminal history dating back more than 10 years.

He’s facing eight years in prison.
