Patrick Cannon resigned Wednesday as mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina. Cannon stepped down hours after he was arrested on federal corruption charges. Steve Crump has more. A CMPD police officer keeps watch, and there appears to be little movement inside the former Charlotte mayor's home. Patrick Cannon was seen in the back seat and was driven into the family's garage by his wife, Trena, and their two children were also in the vehicle. Attorney James Ferguson delivered Cannon's letter of resignation. "It's a difficult time for him and it's a difficult time for his family, and in reality it's a difficult time for the city a difficult time for everybody," Ferguson said. Two hours before, federal agents removed a computer and several boxes from his home, after spending much of the afternoon inside. "I think it's pretty disheartening, said John LeBlanc, a neighbor. "The whole situation and what's going on in our neighborhood shouldn't happen. It's a travesty." While some neighbors may ve critical of Cannon's alleged actions, others say they thought they would never see a day like this in Charlotte. "I think Chicago, New York, L.A., but never Charlotte," says Stephanie Noonan, a neighbor. "I'm depressed about it. You know my prayers are with his family. I'm so sorry." Boxes taken from the home may offer solid leads in the government's case, and attorney Ferguson says the former mayor plans to stay quiet at least for awhile. "He's not gonna have a statement tonight," Ferguson said. "In time I'm sure that he will have his say. So he asks that you respect the privacy of his family, his children. I'm sure everyone can understand that in this circumstance."
