ZIONSVILLE, Ind. - Subway spokesman Jared Fogle's home was the target of federal and state agents during an early-morning raid Tuesday.
WTHR reported that agents from the Indiana Internet Crimes Against Children task force removed electronics from Fogle's home and are analyzing them on the scene in a mobile forensics van.
Fogle is not under arrest, but was being detained outside of his home, WTHR reported.
His attorney released a statement a few hours after the search according to WRTV.
His wife and children left home shortly after the raid began.
In April, Russell Taylor, the executive director of the Jared Foundation was arrested for child pornography, WTHR reported. The foundation was started by Fogle to help prevent childhood obesity, WTHR reported.
Fogle rose to fame after his Subway diet helped him shed nearly 250 pounds while eating nothing but the fast-food sandwiches.
Subway released a statement Tuesday saying that the company believes the search is related to the case against Taylor.
