CHELSEA — A UPS worker pocketed an iPhone 6 meant for a Hell’s Kitchen apartment after marking it as delivered on Dec. 9, according to police.

The worker scanned the package containing the new phone, valued at $749, and then placed the package in her pocket at about 2 p.m., the police report said. The incident was caught on video in the lobby of the building, 550 W. 43rd St.

Police are searching for the worker, described as a 19-year-old woman. 

UPS did not respond to a request for comment. 

Other recent crimes in the 10th Precinct include:

► A 24-year-old woman reported $1,639 worth of clothes stolen from a BoltBus, police said. When she got off the bus last Sunday, her bag, which contained $635 Stuart Weitzman boots and $288 Citizens of Humanity jeans, among other items, was gone, according to a police report. 

► A man's wallet was stolen after a woman tried to solicit him for sex outside of a 10th Avenue bar on Dec. 12, police said.

The man was walking out of the bar at about 1:45 a.m. when the woman grabbed his pants, according to police. After he refused and got into a cab, he noticed that his wallet was missing, along with his credit card and driver's license, police said.
