The U.S. Marshals Service served Bart Reagor with a writ of execution, the demand to pay Ford Motor Credit.
Court records show the Marshals tried his house on 19th Street twice Thursday, he was not home. He was found at the CVS at 50th and Indiana just after 5 p.m.
He was served with the demand to pay $49,280,705.59 plus daily accruing interest. Documents filed Friday show "return nulla bona", meaning nothing was taken from Reagor at the time.
Last month a federal court ordered the Marshals to seize any real estate or property they could to cover Reagor's debt to Ford Credit.
It's been nearly a year since the court ruled Reagor was liable to Ford Credit.
More than a dozen former employees, including its chief financial officer, have pleaded to federal fraud charges. The first of their sentencing hearings are scheduled in January.
Reagor has denied any knowledge of a check kiting scheme at the Auto Group, or of any fraudulent activity.
