There’s a 49-year-old guy named Rahim Javorovac who’s originally from Macedonia, but he’s been a U.S. citizen since 2006, living with his wife in Michigan.

Last month, he was driving back to Michigan from Canada with a woman in his passenger seat.  When he handed the Border Patrol officer their U.S. passports, the officer thought it REALLY didn’t look like the woman.

It took awhile, but they finally figured out what was going on:  Rahim was using his WIFE’S passport to try to sneak his MISTRESS from Macedonia into the U.S.

Rahim admitted he’d taken his wife’s passport without her knowledge and that he’d had a fling with the woman in the car “20 or 30 years ago.”  (Her name is Lenche Krcoska.)  Then they made contact when she visited Canada, and came up with the plan.

They were both arrested and hit with federal charges for improperly using a U.S. passport issued to another person.  That charge has a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
