Jared from Subway is in big trouble

ZIONSVILLE, Ind. —
FBI agents and Indiana State Police raided the home of Subway restaurant spokesman Jared Fogle on Tuesday, removing electronics from the property and searching the house with a police dog.

FBI Special agent Wendy Osborne said the bureau was conducting an investigation in Zionsville, an affluent Indianapolis suburb, but they wouldn't say whether it involved Fogle or describe the nature of the investigation.

Fogle's attorney released the following statement Tuesday:

"Jared has been cooperating, and continues to cooperate, with law enforcement in their investigation of unspecified charges, and looks forward to its conclusion."

Neighbors confirmed the raid occurred at the home of Fogle, 37, who became the restaurant chain's pitchman after shedding 245 pounds more than 15 years ago. Subway began featuring Fogle in commercials soon after, and his story was instrumental in giving the sandwich chain an image as a healthy place to eat.

He has since worked to create awareness of childhood obesity through his Jared Foundation.

WTHR-TV and The Indianapolis Star reported Fogle was detained while electronics were removed from the home and analyzed inside a mobile forensics van Tuesday morning. Fogle, wearing tan shorts and a dark T-shirt, was photographed early Tuesday by The Indianapolis Star stepping out of a police evidence van parked outside his home.

Late Tuesday morning, an armed officer with a badge on his belt briefly stepped outside Fogle's house wearing a blue T-shirt reading, "U.S. Postal Inspector Police," then went back inside.

ABC affiliate WRTV reports the investigation comes in the wake of a child pornography probe for one of Fogle's former business partners. Russell C. Taylor was charged in early May with seven counts of production and one count of possession of child pornography. A spokesperson for the Jared Foundation said it cut all ties with Taylor following his arrest.

Fogle was not implicated and immediately cut ties with Taylor. At the time Fogle said he was shocked by what he called the "disturbing allegations" against Taylor.

The search, which began at 6 a.m., also involved the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the U.S. Postal Inspector Police, WRTV reports.

Calls to Fogle's home went unanswered Tuesday. A representative for Subway, Cindy Carrasquilla, did not respond to emails or phone messages seeking comment.

Neighbors said the family entertained frequently and would say hello but that they didn't see the couple outside a lot.

Jacob Schrader, 19, who lives across from Fogle's house, said the pitchman seems "like a pretty private guy" and that he'd only seen him about a dozen times in the last five or six years.

"He's like an endangered species or something like that," Schrader said.

Subway released the following statement on Tuesday.

"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."

Subway, which is based in Milford, Connecticut, and is privately held, has struggled in recent years. Last year, industry tracker Technomic said average sales for Subway stores in the U.S. declined 3 percent from the previous year. The company has about 44,000 locations around the world.

Fogle has not been arrested or charged with any crime.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated.

Nah I think he will be all good, I think it was just related to his business partner at the time's case.

 

But if he is guilty of this stuff then Subway will have to change it's motto to "Eat Fresh, but not TOO Fresh"

From what I have read, Jared is NOT a focus of the investigation. It is only because the guy who IS in trouble was associated with Jared's foundation.

 

Subway, however, did the right thing to "break off" their partnership with Jared. But once he is cleared, then he should be back.

Jared is even more of a sleaze ball than we thought.
