A Columbus man was indicted Friday by Delaware County grand jury for allegedly stealing guns from his neighbor.

Andrew S. Fellure, 25 of Columbus, was indicted Friday on seven counts of theft, which are third-degree felonies, and three counts of receiving stolen property, fourth-degree felonies. The charges were filed after a Columbus resident noticed several firearms had been taken from his home.
