Federal authorities raided the Indiana home of famed Subway pitchman Jared Fogle Tuesday morning.

WXIN-TV reported that the raid was in connection with a child pornography investigation, with state and federal investigators serving warrants at Fogle's home in Zionsville, Indiana, two months after Russell Taylor, the former director of Fogle's foundation, was arrested on child pornography charges.

FBI spokeswoman Wendy Osborne confirmed to the Indianapolis Star that there was a criminal investigation being conducted at Fogle's home, but would not comment on specifics.

The Star reported according to court documents that Taylor asked a woman he was sexting with whether she wanted to see photos of young girls. She tipped off authorities, who obtained a search warrant and found more than 400 videos of child pornography on Taylor's computers and storage files in his home office. He was arrested on federal child porn charges April 29.

Taylor attempted suicide in jail in May and was put on life support, the Star reported.

The Jared Foundation aims to eliminate childhood obesity.

At the time of Taylor's arrest, Fogle released a statement saying he was "shocked to learn of the disturbing allegations against Mr. Taylor. Effective immediately, the Jared Foundation is severing all ties with Mr. Taylor."

The Indianapolis Star reported that FBI agents and state police were outside Fogle's home along with an evidence truck parked in the driveway.
