Subway Pitchman Jared Fogle Detained Outside House As Feds Serve Warrants In Child Porn Probe

Subway pitchman Jared Fogle being investigated for child porn?

Early this morning, Subway pitchman Jared Fogle’s wife and kids left their Indiana home as federal and state authorities arrived for a mysterious raid.

According to WTHR, authorities — including the FBI, State Police, and Indiana Internet Crimes Against Children — are taking electronics out of Jared’s house and analyzing them inside a forensics van, currently parked in his driveway.

The station reported that the Subway spokesman has been “detained outside,” but isn’t under arrest. He has been seen leaving this van at some point in the morning.

There is much speculation about why law enforcement is searching the Subway pitchman‘s residence. However, no official comment has been made regarding the probe. Fox 59 reported that FBI sources had indicated they are serving warrants on Fogle’s home in connection with a child porn investigation.

On the record, a spokeswoman told the Indianapolis Star that a criminal investigation in the area is underway, but wouldn’t elaborate.

However, only two months ago, the executive director of the Jared foundation, Russell Taylor, was arrested after a stash of porn was allegedly found at his house. He is facing federal charges in the case.

Earlier this year, a woman he was dating told police that he’d offered to share pictures of young girls with her. By April, officials uncovered 400 illicit videos, stored on computers and other media. Four minors in the videos have been identified.

In May, Russell tried to kill himself while incarcerated, but is now on the mend and still facing seven counts production of child pornography and one count of possession.

Jared later issued a statement in which he said he was shocked by the allegations — he quickly distanced himself from Taylor.

Jared has worked for Subway since he famously lost 234 pounds on a diet of its turkey and veggie sandwiches, the New York Daily News added. The company reached out to him, incorporating his story into its advertising and making him practically a household name. The Jared Foundation supports childhood obesity programs.
