On Tuesday both federal and state authorities raided the home of Subway spokesman Jared Fogle. This raid is just two months after the former-executive director of Fogle’s foundation Russell Taylor, was arrested on child pornography charges.
Authorities wouldn’t divulge the nature of the investigation or even what they hoped to find on electronics removed from the scene. However Subway said in a statement that it believed the raid was indeed “related to a prior investigation” of a former employee of the Jared Foundation, which is the organization that was founded by Fogle to raise awareness about childhood obesity.
The company didn’t specify whether that employee was Russell Taylor or not. When Fogle was seen leaving his home Tuesday he declined to comment on the current investigation. Attorney Ron Elberger made it clear in a statement that his client had not been arrested or charged at this time and he was cooperating with police.
Subway took steps to remove any references to Fogle from its website and issued another statement, confirming the two had “mutually agreed to suspend their relationship due to the current investigation.” 37 year old Fogle, became the restaurant chain’s pitchman 15 years ago after shedding 245 pounds in part by regularly eating Subway sandwiches.
Soon after the major weight loss Subway began featuring Fogle in commercials and his story played a major part in giving the sandwich chain an image as a healthy place to eat.
