According to a FBI press release, Toth was placed into custody on April 20, 2013 in Esteli, Nicaragua. The arrest was a coordinated effort by Nicaraguan authorities, the FBI’s Panama City Legal Attaché Office and the Regional Security Office of the U.S. Embassy in Managua.

A recent tip led law enforcement to Nicaragua, where Toth was living under an alias.

Toth, a former private school teacher and camp counselor, had been sought for his alleged production and possession of child pornography. The investigation into Toth began in June 2008 after pornographic images were found on a school camera that had been in his possession.

On June 27, 2008, an arrest warrant was issued for Toth out of U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia for possession of child pornography and, on December 1, 2008, he was indicted in U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland for production of child pornography.

Toth had been a fugitive since his alleged criminal activity was discovered, and he was placed on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list on April 10, 2012.
