ZIONSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — An attorney for Subway restaurant spokesman Jared Fogle says his client is cooperating with authorities who raided his suburban Indianapolis home early Tuesday.

The Indianapolis Star photographed Fogle stepping out of a police evidence van parked outside his home Tuesday morning, and he left the house just after noon with attorney Ron Elberger.

Fogle declined to comment, but Elberger later released a statement saying his client is cooperating with authorities.

“Jared has been cooperating, and continues to cooperate, with law enforcement in their investigation of unspecified charges, and looks forward to its conclusion,” Elberger said.

Authorities have declined to comment on the raid at Fogle’s house in Zionsville or describe the nature of the investigation.

Subway says the company believes the raid “is related to a prior investigation of a former Jared Foundation employee.”

Earlier this year, federal prosecutors charged 43-year-old Russell Taylor with production of child pornography and possession of child pornography. Taylor is the former head of the Jared Foundation.

Tim Horty, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office in Indianapolis, said prosecutors “are moving forward” with the case against Taylor. He declined to comment on Tuesday’s raid at Fogle’s home.
