FBI Seizes Cash, Financial Documents from Cannon

Posted: Updated:
Charlotte, NC - The FBI seized several possessions from former Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon, according to an unsealed search warrant.

The search warrant says that agents searched for documents in three places: Cannon's former city office, an office at his EZ Parking company, and his home.

Agents seized a "brown fossil carrying case" from Cannon's former city office. They also took a Wells Fargo statement, and a printed email from Amani Abdul to Peggy Huffman. The email was dated from February 19, 2014.

They took financial documents, including bank statements, from Cannon's home. Agents also seized a Glock 20 handgun and bullets, $7,680 in cash, cell phones, and computers.

The FBI took business records from the EZ Parking office, including contracts and payments, tax records, and check stubs.
