The 37-year-old multi-millionaire was detained outside of his Zionsville house, according to WTHR, where a special taskforce proceeded to inspect all electronics in his possession in a mobile forensics vehicle.

Both Fogle's wife and kids evacuated the home shortly before the 6:30 a.m. raid, local outlets reported.

This inspection follows the April arrest of the Jared Foundation's executive director, Russell Taylor, for possession of child pornography. It is yet to be seen whether there is any clear connection between the two incidents.

Fogle has not been arrested at this time.
