ALTOONA, Pa. (AP) - A central Pennsylvania police chief suspended during an unspecified internal investigation says he’s retiring.

Logan Township Chief Ron Heller tells the Altoona Mirror (https://bit.ly/1B5RfsV ), “My retirement notice ends the investigation. But I’ll have more to say later.

Township manager Tim Brown announced the suspension about five weeks ago, but says township supervisors were being kept in the dark because they might eventually have to rule on allegations against the chief.

Brown has declined to detail the allegations and Heller says only that it involved in-house matters between him and some of his officers.

Heller’s retirement officially takes effect April 2, but he’s already been replaced by a former sergeant who came out of retirement to serve as acting chief.

Logan is a suburb of Altoona, about 85 miles east of Pittsburgh.
