Jared Fogle, the Subway pitchman who famously lost 245 pounds while eating a diet of fast food sandwiches, had his home raided this morning by federal authorities, Fox 59 reports (opens in new tab).

According to the TV station, state and federal investigators had warrants to search Fogle's Indiana home in connection with a child pornography case. WTHR reports (opens in new tab) that the agents removed electronics from the house to analyze in a mobile electronics van in Fogle's driveway. The FBI confirmed to Business Insider (opens in new tab) that an investigation was taking place, but wouldn't say why.

The investigation may or may not be connected to Russell Taylor, who led Fogle's foundation until he was arrested in for possessing child pornography. The foundation has since cut all ties with Taylor.

WHTR reports Fogle was detained during the raid, but is not under arrest. His wife and kids left the home after authorities arrived. There has been no comment from Fogle, his foundation, or Subway.
