SANTA FE (AP) - A man wanted in New Mexico on charges of attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder has been nabbed in Costa Rica.

That's according to the state attorney general's office.

Authorities in Costa Rica say 26-year-old Nicholas Himmelsbach injured several officers as he was taken into custody Wednesday.

The attorney general's office says Himmelsbach had been working illegally in Costa Rica as a travel agent.

He's expected to be returned to New Mexico within seven to ten days.

He also faces charges of assaulting three people with a deadly weapon, child abuse, shooting at a dwelling and criminal damages to property.
