    Default Federal, Indiana authorities raid home of Subway spokesman

    I'm betting on kiddie porn and drugs here:

    ZIONSVILLE, Ind. (AP) -- 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 FBI was conducting an investigation in Zionsville, an affluent Indianapolis suburb, area but wouldn't say whether it involved Fogle or describe the nature of the investigation.

    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, in part by regularly eating Subway sandwiches. 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.

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

    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 was seen leaving the van.

    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, 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.

    I thought he was arrested in April for possession of kiddie porn.

    That was the director of his foundation, which leads me to wonder if this is an investigation into Jared's activities or a further look into that guy's. It's odd because authorities arrested Taylor (the director), and then it looks like a few days later the prosecutor filed a Notice of Intent Not to Prosecute:

    Executive director of Jared Foundation arrested on child pornography, exploitation charges

    INDIANAPOLIS, Ind (April 29, 2015)– There’s trouble at the top for a central Indiana-based foundation started by Subway spokesman and Indiana native Jared Fogle.

    The executive director of the Jared Foundation, 43-year-old Russell Taylor, is behind bars, preliminarily charged with child exploitation, possession of child pornography, and voyeurism.

    Taylor was arrested today at his home in the 1300 block of Salem Creek Boulevard in Indianapolis.

    Looks like Jared can no longer get free sandwiches from Subway... well, it actually says they "suspended" their relationship.

    I once had a girlfriend that called me a pedophile. I told her "you know, that's a pretty big word for a nine year old"

    they said they were raiding the house because that is where the foundation was based and they found a file in the pedo's computer under foundation files that contained child porn

    and it took them 2 months after his arrest to raid Jared's house?

    I hate to jump to conclusions, but it seems like they could have just gotten and warrant and done this a while ago if there was nothing else

    hope not, cause this Jared guy seems like a good dude, but then, they seldom look like the creepy guy in a van that we were warned of when we were young

    now they are all youth ministers and t-ball coaches and doctors and teachers

    I read an article years ago that had college classmates of Jared's quoted as saying he had a massive porn collection. He actually had a rental business running out of his dorm room.

    In the digital age, if you have a massive collection, something could easily sneak in there that you don't know about. That said, he might be into kiddie porn, who knows? But what I hate about today's media is that we sully people's names without regard for truth, just accusations.

    In my area, a high school teacher was arrested for kiddie porn on his computer. Front page of the local paper, his picture right there.

    Turns out he was framed by the guy who fixed his computer, who was feeling the "heat" and tried to misdirect the police. There was never a follow up story in the local paper. He had to basically move his entire life. Worst part is that he was a really good teacher and is now doing good, just elsewhere.

    Anyway, I will say that we throw the word pedophile around too readily. Pedophilia is being attracted to pre-pubescent children. If you're a man at the beach and you notice a girl in a bikini or you're a woman and you notice a guy's abs and chest hair and you both find out that the guy and girl are 17, you're not a pedophile. You might feel weird about it and know it's wrong, but you're not a pedophile.

    Hey, stop giving creepy guys with vans a bad name. I look like the creepy guy with the van, although I sold the van about 10 years ago!

    Think about it

    Dude used to be over 400 bills. He most likely wasnt' getting any so he spent his time surfing for internet porn. Sometimes seeing things make one go "huh that turns me on." That's how I got into porn featuring women who dress like Alice from Brady Bunch. Seriously you see enough of the stuff and who knows what will happen.

    Plus the guy looks like a peddy.
