SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — A Sandy Springs businessman said Monday he had no ulterior motive when he offered his private firing range for an unusual Police Department training session or gave several weapons as gifts to two high-ranking police officers.

Bruce Weiner, chairman of the nonprofit organization Friends of Sandy Springs, said his gifts to ex-police Chief Gene Wilson and ex-police Maj. James Moore were returned by the two men before last week's release of a city-initiated investigation report.
