Authorities said they used the cell phone of a car salesman sought for kidnapping to track him to Texas. Daniel Clayton Bryant, a former top salesman for Mountain View Chevrolet, is accused of kidnapping a severely disabled man and pulling almost $200,000 from his bank accounts.
Bryant was taken into custody at Cedar Hill, Texas.
Authorities said they were in contact with Bryant, but he would not agree to surrender himself.
He said he would have his attorney contact agents later.
Agents began tracking his phone last Tuesday. He was located temporarily in Atlanta, then he fled westbound on Interstate 20. He was located and taken into custody on Sunday.
He is facing federal charges of kidnapping in Chattanooga.
The FBI earlier moved for an order from a federal judge to stop Bryant from moving the money out of his bank accounts.
An affidavit said Bryant had sold the man a truck and had offered to give him a ride home while it was being serviced. The man said Bryant held him prisoner over the next couple of days and made him make several bank withdrawals.
