INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A foundation suspended Subway restaurant pitchman Jared Fogle created to encourage children to avoid the same obesity he overcame in college faces an uncertain future following a raid at his Indiana home.

A phone number to the Jared Foundation Inc. was out of service and its website was down Wednesday, a day after federal and state authorities seized electronics and other items from Fogle’s suburban Indianapolis home.

Fogle attorney Ron Elberger says his 37-year-old client is cooperating with authorities “in their investigation of unspecified charges.”

The raid followed the arrest in May of the foundation’s then-executive director, Russell Taylor, on child pornography charges.

Taylor oversaw operations of the foundation, through which Fogle visited schools urging children to adopt healthy eating and exercise habits.
