Police Raid Home of Subway Spokesman
State and federal authorities swarmed the Indiana home of Subway spokesman Jared Fogle this morning, months after the former director of Fogle's charitable foundation was arrested in a child pornography case.
Authorities did not say if Tuesday’s search warrants were connected to the arrest of his former associate.
The FBI and Indiana State Police were on the scene Tuesday morning. FBI spokeswoman Wendy Osborne confirmed that the agency was conducting a criminal investigation, but declined further comment.
The development comes two months after Russell Taylor, the former executive director of the Jared Foundation, which Fogle started to raise awareness to and combat childhood obesity, was arrested on federal child pornography charges. Taylor, 43, attempted suicide on May 6 at the Marion County Jail, and was placed on life support, but his health has improved, according to officials. He faces seven counts of production of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography in a case that began when a woman he had been emailing alerted authorities to Taylor's offer to show her images of children.
Officials removed various electronic devices from Fogle’s home. Fogle, 37, has not been arrested at this time. His wife and kids reportedly left the house shortly after investigators arrived.
