The FBI has announced the capture of Eric Justin Toth, one of its “Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” in Nicaragua.

The former private school teacher was wanted on charges of producing and possessing child pornography, he has been on the lam since 2008.  Toth disappeared shortly after the investigation began and after losing his teaching job.

The third grade Washington D. C. teacher came under investigation in 2008 when pornographic images of young boys were found on the schools camera, a camera Toth was using with permission.  Toth, 31, had been on the run for nearly five years, last seen in 2009 in Arizona.  It is believed he traversed the country with spottings in Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and Wisconsin – until a tip led the FBI to Nicaragua.

Nicaraguan authorities confirm that Toth was detained near the border with Honduras on Saturday.  The FBI had a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the former teacher.
