CHELSEA — A man lost his $12,000 TAG Heuer CAV5115 watch after leaving it on a locker room bench last week, police said.

After working out on Nov. 22 at the Crunch Gym at 215 W. 23rd St., the 47-year-old man went to the locker to room change at about 10 a.m., police said. After he got dressed, he left the room, according to the NYPD, but realized before leaving the gym that he no longer had his timepiece.

He went back to the locker room but could not find the watch, police said.

A Crunch manager said no one had reported a missing item.

Other notable crimes in the 10th Precinct include:

► A 29-year-old woman lost her $1,000 Thierry Mugler handbag while riding a Citi Bike to Chelsea Market, police said. She had secured the bag to the front of the bike, police said, but noticed it was missing when she parked the bike across from the market.

In addition to the bag, she lost a yellow gold bracelet worth $100, a Kansas drivers license, a South Africa ID card, a Citi Bike key fob, her apartment key and two Bank of America debit cards, police said.

► A man stole two glass ornaments worth $1,000, an iPad worth $500, a pair of black Prada sunglasses worth $300 and other objects after they were left unattended at a Manhattan Mini Storage loading dock at 541 W. 29th St. on Nov. 29, police said.

The victim, a 28-year-old woman, was inside when the thief took the objects at about 3 p.m., police said. Video cameras at the site caught the man taking the victim’s belongings, according to the NYPD.

Police said the thief also took four GMAT textbooks worth $90, a Jansport backpack worth $55 and a green iPhone charger with $20.

Manhattan Mini Storage did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

► A 27-year-old woman told police that her belongings, worth more than $2,000, had been taken out of her locker at the Fashion Institute of Technology, according to the NYPD.

The woman, who reported the items missing on Nov. 28 at 5 p.m., had locked the locker, and there were no signs of a forced entry, police said.

The victim lost equestrian tools worth $1,200, supplies worth $800, two shoe molds worth $60, a pair of $50 scissors, a $20 book bag, $10 in paper and $7 worth of fabric, police said.
