    A Muncie man is in jail after police found his library card in a home that had been ransacked.

    The Star Press reports 28-year-old Jerry Ray Bane faces preliminary charges of burglary and possession of stolen property. He was being held in the Delaware County Jail under a $30,000 bond Monday night.

    Muncie police say a woman arrived home Christmas Day to find her house had been ransacked overnight and a TV, a laptop computer, a jewelry box, a video game system and her children’s wrapped Christmas gifts were missing. Left behind was a Muncie Public Library card belonging to Bane.

    Police say a witness saw Bane carrying similar items into his apartment.

    Jail records did not indicate whether Bane had an attorney.
