FBI raids home of 'Subway diet' spokesman Jared Fogle

Federal authorities have raided the Indiana home of Subway spokesman Jared Fogle.

The FBI’s Indianapolis division confirmed the investigation to Business Insider, but would not disclose the reason for the raid.

Fox59 broke the news of the raid. It reports: “FBI sources told FOX59 state and federal and state investigators were serving warrants at Fogle’s Zionsville home in connection with a child pornography investigation.”
Fox59 notes that that earlier this year, the director of the Fogle’s charitable foundation, the Jared Foundation, was arrested in a child pornography case.
The foundation cut ties with Taylor following his arrest.
We reached out to Subway for more information.

Fogle rose to fame 15 years ago after losing more than 200 pounds by eating Subway sandwiches.

The restaurant chain hired him to be an official spokesman, and today he has a net worth of $US15 million, according to the New York Daily News.
