(NBC) Federal and state agents raided the Indiana home of Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle early Tuesday morning.

The raid of Fogle's home is part of a child porn investigation. In April, Russell Taylor, the executive director of the Jared Foundation, was arrested after investigators found child pornography inside his home.

Fogle started the foundation in 2004 to battle childhood obesity. 

Agents removed electronics from Fogle's home and they are being analyzed in a forensics lab parked in the driveway.

The subway spokesperson walked out of his home with investigators.

Fogle has been detained, but has not been arrested.

ZIONSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - FBI agents and Indiana State Police are at the home of Subway restaurant spokesman Jared Fogle and have removed electronics from the property.

FBI Special agent Wendy Osborne said Tuesday that the FBI was conducting an investigation in the Zionsville area but wouldn't confirm it involved Fogle.

WTHR-TV and The Indianapolis Star report the house belongs to Fogle and that he was detained while electronics were removed from the home and analyzed inside a mobile forensics van.

Fogle became the restaurant's pitchman after losing more than 200 pounds while eating Subway sandwiches and exercising.

Calls to his home went unanswered Tuesday.
