State and federal authorities Tuesday raided the suburban Indianapolis home of Subway sandwich icon Jared Fogle. The action comes after the head of Fogle’s foundation was arrested on child pornography charges.

Indiana State Police and federal authorities were at Fogle’s Zionsville home early Thursday. Fogle is known for losing more than 200 pounds on a Subway sandwich diet and then becoming a corporate pitchman.

A local Justice Department spokesman says Fogle has not been arrested or charged with a crime.
