Surveillance footage shows the young thief with the surname Zhou parked the stolen car in another parking lot nearby and went home, according to a report by huanqiu.com.

Zhou drove to school and back in the black Audi sedan the next day, and was arrested by police who were waiting for him at the parking lot.

Nothing missing from inside the car, but it did have a scratch on the outside. Authorities decided not to charge Zhou since he is a minor. Zhou's custodian and the car owner have reached an agreement on the appropriate compensation.
