The Zionsville, Indiana home of Subway spokesman Jared Fogle was raided early Tuesday morning by federal agents. The probe is reported to be a part of a child pornography investigation.

According to Fox 59, Fogle stood by while agents swept through his residence, removing electronics. The items were taken to a mobile forensics van parked outside of the home, where they were analyzed.

In April, Russell Taylor, the former executive director of Fogle’s Jared Foundation, which is dedicated to ending childhood obesity, was arrested after being accused of possessing and producing child pornography. On May 6, he was hospitalized and placed on life support after a failed suicide attempt. Authorities say that his health has improved since then. Taylor is currently facing seven counts of production of child pornography and one count of possession.

After Taylor’s arrest, Fogle expressed that he was “shocked” by the allegations and also announced that the foundation would be cutting ties with the ex-director. Investigators began watching Taylor after a woman accused him of offering to email her pictures of children. At this point, it is unclear if the raid is in connection with Taylor’s case. However, according to TMZ, cops discovered a flash drive alleged to belong to Taylor that contained child pornography and work-related files, which could explain the raid at Fogle’s home.

Fogle is not currently under arrest.
