Although this may seem likely, I lie, everything is truthful.
A friend of mine bought a laptop computer after one of his former roommates had just bailed on him and not paid the rent. It's very likely that the laptop is stolen because it has an Apple ID that doesn't seem to be related to the former roommate. We have tried to find information from the email but have not been able to contact the previous owner.
He's had the laptop around 2 years.
My question is, should we report it to the police assuming they just wanted to take it) or could we legally unlock and keep the computer.
Do we only have an expensive paper weight or can we potentially get it returned / unlocked?
