This edition of Stupid Criminals is about the best freebie arrest police will ever get.

According to the Newark Star-Ledger, 20-year-old Quamier Claiborne of Roselle, New Jersey was locked out of his 2009 Volkswagen Passat earlier this week.

Luckily some cops drove by, and he flagged them down to ask for help getting in.

But when they ran the plates on the car, it turned out he had stolen it.

Claiborne was arrested for receiving stolen property and attempted burglary of a vehicle.
