A Delaware County Grand Jury has returned a four-­count indictment against a 36-­year-­old man accused of robbing the First Merit Bank in Lewis Center in June of this year.

Seth P. Kafoure, was indicted Friday and charged with two counts of robbery, second-degree felonies and two counts of theft, a fifth-degree felony and a first-degree misdemeanor.
