ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) - Police say a refrigeration company worker was found dead of apparent electrocution on the roof of a northeast Florida convenience store.

The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office reports that 47-year-old Robert Wagner of Orange Park had been working on a cooling unit at the Kangaroo convenience store. A police officer on patrol at 2:30 a.m. Thursday found the body after noticing a ladder on the side of the building.

Wagner worked for Integrity First Refrigeration of DeLand.

An official cause of death will be determined by an autopsy.
