Indiana State Police and FBI investigators searched Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle's home early Tuesday. This raid comes just two months after Russell Taylor, the executive director of the Jared Foundation, was taken into custody in Indianapolis on federal child pornography charges.
The U.S. Attorney General's office would not confirm if the search of the Zionsville, Indiana residence is directly related to the arrest. An evidence truck was seen parked outside the TV personality's driveway and Fogle was seen with law enforcement.
Fogle's attorney, Ron Elberger, released the following statement to ET.
"Jared has been cooperating, and continues to cooperate, with law enforcement in their investigation of unspecified charges and looks forward to its conclusion," the statement reads. "He has not been detained, arrested or charged with any crime or offense."
Subway also told ET in a statement: "We are shocked about the news and believe it is related to a prior investigation of a former Jared Foundation employee. We are very concerned and will be monitoring the situation closely. We don’t have any more details at this point."
Following Taylor's May arrest for child pornography charges, Fogle and the foundation -- which raises awareness about childhood obesity -- severed all ties from the former director. A few days later, he attempted suicide at the Marion County Jail and has since been put on life support.
Taylor, 43, was arrested after a woman he was corresponding with through text messages claimed he asked her if she'd like to see photos of young girls, according to court documents obtained by ET. Concerned, she contacted the police.
Following the Indiana Crimes Against Children Task Force search of Taylor's home and home office, the former director faces seven counts of production of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography. Court documents state that four minors have been identified as alleged victims.
"I was shocked to learn of the disturbing allegations against Mr. Taylor," Fogle, who founded the organization in 2006, said upon first learning of Taylor's arrest (via NBC local news affiliate WTHR
). "Effective immediately, the Jared Foundation is severing all ties with Mr. Taylor."
Subway also released a statement after Taylor was taken into custody. "We don't have any affiliation with the foundation, and we were disgusted to hear about these claims. We're glad Jared took quick action to sever all his ties with Mr. Taylor."
