SUBWAY'S JARED FOGLE'S HOME SEARCHED BY FBI
NBC NEWS -- Subway spokesman Jared Fogle's home in suburban Indianapolis was searched by police and federal agents on Tuesday morning.
Aerial footage from NBC affiliate WTHR showed the Zionsville house surrounded by police cars and cops. Agents took electronics, including a computer, from the home and carried them to an evidence truck in the driveway. At one point, Fogle stepped from his home and entered the truck.
Fogle's lawyer, Ron Elberger, responded with a statement that said his client had not been held, arrested or charged with any crime. "Jared has been cooperating, and continues to cooperate, with law enforcement in their investigation of unspecified charges and looks forward to its conclusion," Elberger said.
The raid followed the April arrest of the executive director of Fogle's nonprofit organization, the Jared Foundation, on charges related to child pornography. At the time, Fogle said in a statement that he was shocked at the charges and that his foundation was severing all ties to the director, Russell Taylor.
The nonprofit aims to help children combat obesity.
A Subway spokesman responded to word of Tuesday's search with a statement in which the company said it knew little about it. "We are shocked about the news and believe it is related to a prior investigation of a former Jared Foundation employee," the company said.
