A former school teacher who is on the FBI’s Most Wanted list as a suspect in a child porno investigation has been collared in Nicaragua, law enforcement said.

National Police chief Aminta Granera told media that Eric Justin Toth was nabbed in Esteli, a city located near Nicaragua's border with Honduras, and will be immediately deported to the United States.

 "Toth will be deported immediately because he was in our country illegally," Granera said at a news conference in Managua, the capital.

Toth entered Nicaragua with a fake ID including  passport, driver's license and credit cards.

Toth was handed over to FBI agents present at the news conference and they will  fly the fugitive to the U.S. in a special plane, Granera said.

"He was captured in a house in the Panama Soberana neighborhood in Esteli, even though he resisted," Granera said.

Toth taught third grade at a private elementary school, Beauvoir, on the grounds of the Washington National Cathedral.

Toth was escorted off campus in June 2008 after another teacher reported finding sexually explicit photographs on a school camera in his possession. He disappeared and was the target of the FBI manhunt after losing his job.

Toth was added to the FBI's Most Wanted list in April 2012 for allegedly possessing and producing child pornography. The FBI’s Most Wanted list normally reserved for people sought in connection with violent crimes or terrorism.
