Montezuma police say a Byromville man was electrocuted inside a vacant warehouse during a reported burglary.
It happened at the Allen's Inc. warehouse on Airport Road. Police identified it as the former Americold warehouse.
On Thursday, employees noticed that copper tubing and electrical boxes inside the building had been cut.
When an officer arrived and searched the building, he saw a man's body on the metal duct work in the electrical control room.
Georgia Power killed the power to the building.
The man was identified as Kenneth Lewis of Byromville. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
In a news release, police said he was electrocuted.
Chief Eric Finch wrote, "I want to stress, stress, stress and stress again that it is not safe to enter this building."
