According to a report by CNN, the Indiana home belonging to Jared Fogle, the spokesman for the Subway food chain, was subject to a search earlier today (Tues., Jul. 7) as part of a FBI probe in an investigation of a former employee of Folge’s foundation.
Fogle’s attorney Ron Elberger disclosed authorities removed multiple computers from the property but remained tight-lipped regarding what they may have been looking for. Fogle has not been charged or arrested and according to his attorney has been cooperating with law enforcement.
FBI authorities are also keeping silent on the investigation, stating “that the nature of the investigation can’t be discussed at this time.”
The search seems to be connected to the arrest of the foundation’s executive director on federal charges for child pornography just two months prior. The foundation strives to combat childhood obesity.
But what does Subway have to say about this situation?
The company believes the search is “related to a prior investigation” of a former employee of the Jared Foundation.
Fogle rose to fame in 2000 with his testimony of losing over 200 lbs with a diet incorporating Subway sandwiches in one year.
