Jared Fogle’s Home Raided by the FBI for Child Pornography


On Tuesday, federal and state authorities raided the home of famed Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle as a part of a child pornography investigation.

The raid at Fogle’s Indiana home follows the April arrest of Russell Taylor on federal child pornography charges. Taylor served as the former director of Fogle’s charity, the Jared Fogle Foundation, which was dedicated to combating childhood obesity.

Around 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday, agents were seen carrying electronics out of the Zionsville home where Fogle was also detained. A local NBC affiliate reports a mobile forensics van was seen analyzing the collected materials.

Fogle was not arrested or charged with a crime. Authorities confirmed the investigation, but would not say whether the raid was specifically investigating Fogle or if it was connected to Taylor’s earlier arrest.

Fogle, who became a nationally recognized figure after he lost more than 200 pounds while eating Subway sandwiches as a cornerstone of his diet 15 years ago, is reportedly worth $15 million. He is 37-years-old.

Back in 2007, Fogle was accused of running a porn industry rental service from his dorm room when he was in college in the nineties. Subway officials dismissed those allegations about their spokesman, saying they had “no knowledge” of the report.
