Greensboro, NC -- 2 Wants to Know confirmed the City of Greensboro has returned the gun and badge to former police chief David Wray.

The city council granted the request despite the fact Wray resigned amidst a racial profiling scandal.


City manager Mitchell Johnson says Wray denied the existence of a binder known as the "Black Book" and asked to have it secured by a subordinate. 


Black police officers alleged that same "Black Book" was used to target them for unsubstantiated investigations. Wray later resigned as the city investigated the claims. 


Still, documents show Wray's attorney received two of the former chief's badges.


Another document shows current chief Tim Bellamy presented Wray with his 40-caliber service weapon in September. 

Mayor Yvonne Johnson says the council approved Wray's request as part of the mediation process with Wray's attorneys.


She says he also wanted to keep his health benefits and his membership in the state retirement plan.  Johnson did not say whether those requests were granted. 


Wray has not been charged with a crime. 


City Manager Mitchell Johnson says exactly how the "Black Book" was used is till unknown.


WFMY News 2's reached Wray's attorney by phone.  He says the city did not award him retirement health benefits.  But, Wray does have access to retirement funds he earned while on the job.
