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.
