"Subway Guy" Jared Fogle is grabbing headlines this morning over the presence of something (police) rather than an absence of something (pounds): The Indianapolis Star reports that FBI agents and state police today entered Fogle's home in Zionsville, Ind. An evidence truck was observed in the driveway. An FBI rep wouldn't comment on their reason for being there beyond confirming a criminal investigation was underway in the area. The investigation follows the April 29 arrest of Russell Taylor, the executive director of the Jared Foundation, which teaches kids about healthy living; per court documents, more than 400 child porn videos were found at Taylor's home.

Fogle quickly announced his foundation was "severing all ties" with the 43-year-old, who attempted suicide one month ago while in jail and was put on life support, per the Star. CBS4 reports it spoke with FBI sources who said the warrants were being served in connection with a child pornography investigation, though they didn't specify if it was part of the Taylor case.
