FBI Raids Subway Spokesman Jared Fogle’s Home In Child Pornography Investigation
Famous Subway spokesman Jared Fogle’s Zionsville, Ind., home was invaded by the FBI on Tuesday morning (July 7).
According to local news station FOX59, state and federal officials entered Fogle’s home as part of a child pornography investigation. Indiana State Police and FBI officers began their raid at 6:30 this morning, just after Fogle’s wife and children left the home. Electronics were seized and placed into a mobile forensics vehicle, the New York Daily News reports.
Back in April, Russell Taylor, the executive director of Fogle’s child obesity organization, Jared Foundation, was arrested on child pornography after officials discovered more than 400 videos at his Indianapolis home, a collection he reportedly recorded between 2012 and 2015. He was later jailed, and tried to commit suicide behind bars in May. The FBI has not yet specified if the investigation of Fogle’s home is connected to Taylor’s case.
Fogle rose to iconic fast food spokesperson status after attributing a 245-pound weight loss to the sandwich chain. Subway has not released a statement on the matter.
