ZIONSVILLE, Indiana -- Police were at the home of Subway spokesman Jared Fogle on Tuesday morning. 

A law enforcement source has confirmed to CBS News that Subway restaurant spokesman Jared Fogle is a suspect in a federal child pornography investigation.

FBI agents and Indiana State Police went to Fogle's house in Zionsville, Indiana and removed electronics from the property.

A heavy police presence, including the FBI, was outside of the home in the 4500 block of Woods Edge Drive, according to WISHTV.com, the CBS affiliate in Indianapolis.  

Fogle's attorney, Ron Elberger released a statement to CBS News on Tuesday afternoon.

"Jared has been cooperating, and continues to cooperate, with law enforcement in their investigation of unspecified charges and looks forward to its conclusion," Elberger said. "He has not been detained, arrested or charged with any crime or offense."

Subway also released a statement on the situation Tuesday afternoon.

“We are shocked about the news and believe it is related to a prior investigation of a former Jared Foundation employee,” the statement read. “We are very concerned and will be monitoring the situation closely. We don’t have any more details at this point.”

In April, Russell Taylor was arrested for three counts of possession of child pornography, three counts of child exploitation and three counts of voyeurism.

Taylor was the executive director for the Jared Foundation, which is a not-for-profit that helps children deal with childhood obesity. It was started by the Subway spokesman and Indianapolis native, Jared Fogle, in 2004.

Taylor was later let go from his position.
