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.

IT'S NOT THAT WE'RE SCREWED WITHOUT TRUMP:

"It's that we're screwed with or without him if we can't show the public that what we do matters for the long term," writes Mother Jones CEO Monika Bauerlein as she kicks off our drive to raise $350,000 in donations from readers by July 17.

This is a big one for us. It's our first time asking for an outpouring of support since screams of FAKE NEWS and so much of what Trump stood for made everything we do so visceral. Like most newsrooms, we face incredibly hard budget realities, and it's unnerving needing to raise big money when traffic is down.

So, as we ask you to consider supporting our team's journalism, we thought we'd slow down and check in about where Mother Jones is and where we're going after the chaotic last several years. This comparatively slow moment is also an urgent one for Mother Jones: You can read more in "Slow News Is Good News," and if you're able to, please support our team's hard-hitting journalism and help us reach our big $350,000 goal with a donation today.
