(Newser) – Police in Nicaragua have detained a US man who was on the FBI's 10 most-wanted fugitives as a suspect in a child pornography investigation, authorities confirmed today. Former school teacher Eric Justin Toth was detained Saturday in Esteli, a city near Nicaragua's border with Honduras, said Nicaragua's National Police. Toth's arrest was based on an international detention request.

Toth taught third grade at Beauvoir, a private elementary school on the grounds of the Washington National Cathedral. He was escorted off campus in June 2008 after another teacher reported finding sexually explicit photographs on a school camera in Toth's possession. He had not been seen since he lost his job. Toth was added to the FBI's most-wanted list in April 2012 for allegedly possessing and producing child pornography, giving him notoriety normally reserved for people sought in connection with violent crimes or terrorism. The FBI had been offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to Toth's arrest.
