It looks like Subway spokesman Jared Fogle could be trading the oversized “before” jeans for an orange jumpsuit. On Tuesday morning, Fogle’s home was raided in connection with a child pornography investigation.
At 6:30 a.m. this morning, state and federal investigators served Fogle with warrants to search his home. An evidence truck and FBI and Indiana State Police investigators were present at the scene.
“Earlier this year, Russell Taylor, the former director of the Jared Foundation started by Fogle, was arrested in a child pornography case,” WGNTV reports. “He was accused of possessing and producing child pornography.”
Though Fogle claims to have severed all ties between the Foundation and Taylor since the arrest, police are keeping mum on the connection between Tuesday’s raid and Taylor’s investigation.
