How to find owner of lost iPhone 6 with a passcode and no service?

I found an iPhone 6 ON a dumpster that I believe was left by a construction worker working on the parking lot I found it in just the other day. It has a picture of a baby as the background icon, a shattered screen and charges up fine, so it looks like the phone was functioning and in use. The only problem is it has no service whatsoever, is passcode protected and, to top it off, it has a shattered screen. I have no means of using the Siri trick to get any information on the owner. I haven't tried plugging it into iTunes yet, but somehow I think it would just try to add the phone to my iTunes and do nothing more for me. Any tips?

just turn it in to the police department. protects you also so you don't have any cops knocking on your door saying you have stolen property.
