ZIONSVILLE, Ind. (AP) – An attorney for Subway restaurant spokesman Jared Fogle says his client is cooperating with authorities who raided his suburban Indianapolis home early Tuesday.

Attorney Ron Elberger released a statement several hours after the raid that says Fogle “has been cooperating, and continues to cooperate, with law enforcement in their investigation of unspecified charges, and looks forward to its conclusion.”

Authorities have declined to comment on the raid at Fogle’s house in Zionsville or describe the nature of the investigation.

Subway says the company believes the raid “is related to a prior investigation of a former Jared Foundation employee.”

In May, federal prosecutors charged 43-year-old Russell Taylor with production of child pornography and possession of child pornography. Taylor is the former head of the Jared Foundation.
