PHOENIX -- A man accused of producing child pornography was just added to the FBI's "Ten Most Wanted Fugitives" list and authorities believe he lived in Phoenix for a time.

The FBI has been searching for Eric Justin Toth, aka David Bussone, since June 2008 after pornographic images were found on a Washington, D.C., school camera that had been in his possession. Toth also allegedly produced child pornography in Maryland.

Since then he has eluded capture. Toth is believed to have traveled to Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Minnesota. It is also believed that he lived in a homeless shelter in Phoenix as recently as 2009.

Toth, 30, is a former private school teacher and camp counselor.

According to the FBI, he has often been described as a computer "expert" and has demonstrated an above-average knowledge regarding computers, the use of the Internet and security awareness.

FBI Special Agent Manuel Johnson said Toth possesses an educational background conducive to gaining employment in fields having a connection to children and may advertise online as a tutor or male nanny.

"He puts himself in places and jobs where he has accessibility to children so it's real important that we get Mr. Toth off the street," Johnson said.

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading directly to Toth's arrest.

The FBI released photos of Toth on Tuesday. He is 6 feet 3 inches tall, weighs approximately 155 pounds, and has brown hair, green eyes and a medium complexion. He also has a mole under his left eye.

Anyone with information on Toth's current whereabouts is asked to call the FBI's Phoenix field office at 623-466-1999.
