Icloud activation

CERT-LatestNews ThreatsCybercrime
Anyone over here know how to bypass icloud activation lock because i found a iphone and reported it to a police but he said it has already erased it's data and no personal information can be found to (name/msg on the screen) return so you can take it. Any idea how i can bypass/remove it.A subreddit dedicated to hacking and hackers.
