RAID AT SUBWAY SPOKESMAN JARED’S HOME …
The FBI, Indiana State Police and U.S. Postal Service raided the home of Jared Fogle, more famous as Jared, the Subway restaurant pitch man, on Tuesday. The authorities grabbed documents, electronics and other items from Fogle’s Zionsville home. The raid comes more than two months after Russell Taylor, the executive director of the Jared Foundation, Fogle’s organization that aspires to combat childhood obesity, was arrested in Indianapolis on federal child pornography charges. Subway has suspended its relationship with Jared in the wake of the raid and investigation. To date, Fogle’s attorney Ron Elberger said his client has not been arrested or charged with any crime.
Restaurant chain Subway announced Tuesday it suspended its relationship with spokesman Jared Fogle after state and federal authorities descended on the pitchman’s home, just two months after the former director of his charitable foundation was arrested on child pornography charges.
According to a statement released by the company, both sides agreed that suspending the relationship was “the appropriate step to take,” adding that Fogle continues to cooperate with authorities and expects “no actions forthcoming.”
The company had removed references to Fogle from its website by late afternoon Tuesday.
Investigators from the FBI, State Police and Postal Service arrived early Tuesday morning at Fogle’s home, where an evidence truck was parked in the driveway, according to the Indianapolis Star. The newspaper reported that electronics were taken from Fogle’s home and analyzed in the truck. Fogle, who could not be reached for comment, was home during the search and was seen entering and leaving the evidence truck.
