The sheriff's office said deputies called the residence on their way to the home two times, with a man picking up the second call.
The man on the line, identified as Jamie Chick, said he thought there was something wrong with the resident and believed the man was dead.
Deputies arrived and found the body of a man in "a condition that would indicate his death had likely occurred one or more hours prior." Deputies also found Chick, 36, and Blake Williford, 30, at the home.
Deputies obtained a hard drive from the owner's surveillance cameras.
Deputies said Chick and Williford were "observed pilfering through the deceased resident’s pockets and the residence after waking up to discover the resident was deceased."
Deputies alleged neither person "made any visible effort to provide medical assistance to the resident" and they attempted to "flee the residence without contacting law enforcement," which led to them tripping the burglary alarm.
Deputies arrested Chick and Williford March 13 and charged them with abandonment of a corpse and tampering with physical evidence.
