The body of an unidentified man was found Monday morning in the ventilation system of a Galloway pizza shop. Police say that the man may have gotten stuck in the vent while trying to rob the store.

A release from Galloway Township Police says that Two Brothers From Italy Restaurant, in the Pomona Shopping Center, was broken into about three weeks ago and that the thieves had gotten in through the roof.

Galloway Police Chief Donna Higbee said it was immediately unclear if the ventilation system was used in that break-in.
