AUGUSTA — A Waterville bank robbery suspect, who told police he was picking berries when he was found 20 feet from a large amount of cash, has been indicted on a class B robbery charge.

Kevin Lee Barr, 38, of Waterville, is one of a number of people indicted Thursday by a grand jury at the Capital Judicial Center in Kennebec County.

Barr, who has been unable to post the $20,000 cash bail set shortly after his arrest July 10, 2018, remains in the Kennebec County jail in Augusta. The class B robbery charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. The indictment says that Barr committed the theft and threatened to use force against two tellers working at the time.

Authorities credited a GPS tracking device that was included among the cash stolen that day from the KeyBank branch on Kennedy Memorial Drive for allowing the swift apprehension of the suspect.

An indictment is not a determination of guilt, but it indicates that there is enough evidence to proceed with formal charges and a trial.

Here’s a list of other people indicted Thursday:

• George A. Day, 35, of Belgrade, theft by unauthorized taking of merchandise April 20, 2018, from Marden’s Surplus & Salvage in Waterville.
