DEVELOPING: State and federal authorities were searching the Indiana home of Subway spokesman Jared Fogle Tuesday, months after the former director of his charitable foundation was arrested in a child pornography case, Fox59 reported.

Fogle, 37, who became the sandwich chain’s spokeJared Subway470publicdomainsman in 2000 after losing weight as a freshman at Indiana University by eating an all-Subway diet, lives in the Indianapolis suburb of Zionsville. Authorities did not say if Tuesday’s search warrants were connected to the arrest of his former associate.

Investigators from the FBI, State Police and Postal Service were outside Fogle’s home, where an evidence truck was parked in the driveway, according to the Indianapolis Star. Fogle was seen leaving the truck.

The FBI and Indiana State Police were on the scene Tuesday morning. FBI spokeswoman Wendy Osborne confirmed that the agency was conducting a criminal investigation, but declined further comment.

The development comes two months after Russell Taylor, the former executive director of the Jared Foundation, which Fogle started to raise awareness to and combat childhood obesity, was arrested on federal child pornography charges. Taylor, 43, attempted suicide on May 6 at the Marion County Jail, and was placed on life support, but his health has improved, according to officials.

Taylor faces seven counts of production of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography in a case that began when a woman he had been emailing alerted authorities to Taylor’s offer to show her images of children.

 After Taylor’s arrest, Fogle issued a statement that said he was “shocked” over the allegations and that the foundation was “severing all ties” with Taylor.
