The 37-year-old Fogle’s home in Zionsville, Ind., was raided in July, in connection with a child porn investigation.

FOX59 report that earlier this year, Russell Taylor, the former director of the Jared Foundation started by Fogle, was arrested in a child pornography case. He was accused of possessing and producing child pornography. Investigators said a search of Taylor’s home turned up more than 500 videos with images of child pornography. In May, Taylor unsuccessfully tried to kill himself while in jail.

Jared became a Subway pitchman more than 15 years ago after losing more than 200 pounds as a college student at Indiana University, in part by eating the chain’s sandwiches.

Subway suspended their relationship with Fogel shortly after the raid.
