Man dies while committing burglary

FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. -- Forsyth County Sheriff's investigators believe a man found dead over the weekend was committing a burglary shortly before he passed away.

Officials were dispatched to the 8200 block of Browns Bridge Road Saturday at around 7 a.m. When they arrived, they found 42-year-old Joseph Pollard dead.

Investigators said Pollard and 51-year-old Jeffery Chester were burglarizing the location when Pollard died. Chester left, then later returned to the scene. He was arrested and charged with burglary.

Pollard's cause of death has not been determined, but police do not suspect foul play. The GBI will perform an autopsy.
