MUNCIE – A Muncie man faces multiple charges after police tracked down a car that had been reported stolen.

A police officer saw the car pull into Village Pantry, 603 W. Jackson St., around 1:10 a.m. Tuesday.

The driver, 26-year-old Gerald Everette Mooneyhan II, told police he’d recently sold the vehicle but took it back when the buyer stopped making payments, according to the Muncie Star Press. The car was still registered to Mooneyhan, records showed.
