Indianapolis, Indiana- The home of Jared Fogle’s, the famous Subway spokesman, in suburban Indianapolis was searched by police and federal agents on Tuesday morning. Fogle’s house was searched as part of a child pornography investigation that involves the former head of his nonprofit foundation.
Fogle became famous for the Subway commercials that he participated in. . He attributes his significant weight loss to the “Subway diet.” After learning of the allegations, the sandwich chain distanced themselves from Fogle and suspended their relationship according to NBC News.
Fogle’s lawyer, Ron Elberger, has since stated: “Fogle has not been held, arrested, or charged with any crime. Jared has been cooperating and continues to cooperate with law enforcement in their investigation of unspecified charges and looks forward to its conclusion.”
According to People’s magazine, Russell Taylor ran the Jared Foundation, which is a nonprofit organization that encourages healthy eating and exercise habits for kids. Taylor was arrested on May 4. Taylor was charged with multiple counts of producing and possessing child pornography following a raid of his Indianapolis home. The Jared Foundation, an organization that works to stop childhood obesity, has since cut ties with him.
Subway has released a statement saying “Jared continues to cooperate with authorities and he expects no actions to be forthcoming.”
