WASHINGTON (CNN) — One of the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted fugitives was picked up Saturday in Nicaragua, according to a federal law enforcement official.

The official did not provide details on how Eric Toth, 31, was located and apprehended. Toth is a former Washington private school teacher who was wanted on child pornography charges.

According to the FBI, in June 2008, images of child pornography were found on a school camera Toth had been using. He allegedly also produced such images in Maryland.

U.S. officials are working on returning him to the United States to face charges.

Toth was put on the Ten Most Wanted list in March 2012, and there was a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading to his arrest.
