A man found a Bentley unattended at a parking lot and drove off with it.

However, a few days later, he crashed the car and no longer had use for it, so he returned it.

The 25-year-old man was arrested in Shanghai, China, when he returned the stolen Bentley after crashing it during a joyride.

The suspect, who was identified as Liu, allegedly stole the car when he saw it unattended at a store parking lot.

Liu allegedly broke the trunk of the car looking for a set of keys. When he found a spare set of keys he jumped into the front seat and drove to his home in the province of Zhejiang.

A few days later however, Liu’s joyride was ended when he accidentally crashed the car. He told his friend what happened. He also told his friend that the car was stolen.

The friend persuaded him to do the right thing and return the car. Liu drove the Bentley back into the city and parked it where he stole it.

He also left a note and compensation to the owner. Upon leaving the parking area, he was immediately arrested by the police.
