Subway restaurant spokesman Jared Fogle’s home raided in child porn investigation

INDIANAPOLIS (KRON) — Subway has suspended ties with Jared Fogle, the longtime spokesperson and success story for Subway restaurants, according to the Associated Press.

This comes as Fogle is at the center of a federal child porn investigation, NBC Indianapolis WTHR reports.

The Indiana Internet Crimes Against Children task force are at the helm of the investigation, and are currently raiding Fogle’s Zionsville home.

Fogle’s child porn investigation comes on the heels of his business associate’s arrest in April.

In April, 43-year-old Russell Taylor, who was the executive director of the Jared Foundation, which aims to raise awareness and funds to support childhood obesity programs, was charged with three counts of child exploitation, three counts of possession of child pornography and three counts of voyeurism, The Associated Press reports.

The Jared Foundation was started by Fogle, who’s best known for losing around 235 pounds by eating Subway sandwiches and exercising.

No word on what charges were brought against Fogle, or what agents seized during the raid of his Zionsville home.
