ZIONSVILLE, Ind. (WLNS) — The attorney for Subway spokesman Jared Fogle isn’t commenting about the raid on Fogle’s house Tuesday morning.

Local media reported FBI and Indiana State Police took computers and laptops from Fogle’s home, located in the 4500 block of Woods Edge Drive in Zionsville.

WTHR-TV and The Indianapolis Star reported Fogle was detained while the electronics were analyzed inside a mobile forensics van.

Sources tell our sister station WISH-TV that the raid stemmed from an April investigation in which the executive director of the Jared Foundation was busted for having 400 videos of child pornography. That man, Russell Taylor, was arrested for three counts of possession of child pornography, three counts of child exploitation and three counts of voyeurism. Taylor was later let go from his position with the Jared Foundation, which is a not-for-profit that helps children deal with childhood obesity.

In a brief statement emailed Tuesday, Subway expressed shock and concern about the raid on Fogle’s home. The restaurant chain also said the investigation is likely linked to another case, however the company has dropped Fogle from its website.  A Subway representative, Cindy Carrasquilla, didn’t respond when asked for more details.

Fogle became a Subway spokesman after losing 245 pounds by regularly eating Subway sandwiches. Calls to his home went unanswered Tuesday.
