ZIONSVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — Police were at the home of Subway spokesman Jared Fogle on Tuesday morning as part of a child porn investigation.

A heavy police presence, including the FBI were outside of the home in the 4500 block of Woods Edge Drive.

Two police officials with dogs were seen entering the home. U.S. Postal Inspector Police officials were also there.

According to police, the investigation stems from a child porn investigation tied to a former employee.

Subway released a statement on the situation Tuesday afternoon.

We are shocked about the news and believe it is related to a prior investigation of a former Jared Foundation employee,” the statement read. “We are very concerned and will be monitoring the situation closely. We don’t have any more details at this point.

n April, Russell Taylor was arrested for three counts of possession of child pornography, three counts of child exploitation and three counts of voyeurism.

Taylor was the executive director for the Jared Foundation, which is a not-for-profit that helps children deal with childhood obesity. It was started by the Subway spokesman and Indianapolis native, Jared Fogle, in 2004.

Taylor was later let go from his position.

Fogle left the home Tuesday in front of a large media presence. He didn’t speak, and quickly left in a vehicle driven by someone else.


Fogle’s attorney released the following statement:

Jared has been cooperating, and continues to cooperate, with law enforcement in their investigation of unspecified charges and looks forward to its conclusion,” attorney Ron Elberger said in an email. “He has not been detained, arrested or charged with any crime or offense.
