Man sentenced in Georgia weapons-explosives case

ATLANTA (AP) - A man police say told them he was a member of a white supremacist group has been sentenced in Atlanta to 30 years in prison for having weapons and explosives.

Police arrested 41-year-old Brandon Lee Hall a year ago. Police reports list items confiscated from Hall at that time as including a machete, handguns, black powder ball bearing rounds, a map of Austin, Texas, and a possible bomb. They also say Hall had some disturbing notes, 1 of which said "Mass Evacuation."

Hall was found guilty of weapons charges and was sentenced on Thursday.

Atlanta police say Hall told them he was a member of a group called the Aryan Knights Brotherhood. A police report says Hall told officers he needed the weapons for personal protection.
