Taneytown police Chief Gregory S. Woelfel has been placed on paid administrative leave for 21 days, effective March 8, Mayor Henry C. Heine Jr. confirmed yesterday. "This is a personnel issue. He is still employed at this moment," Heine said, adding, "We will be prepared to make a statement" after the 21 days. Woelfel has led a force of eight officers who provide police service to the town of about 5,000. Reached at his Frederick County home yesterday, he declined to comment. The mayor appointed Woelfel, then a lieutenant in the department, to the job nearly two years ago. He succeeded Chief Melvin Diggs, who retired after a dozen years.
