Gene Simmons’ Home Searched by Crimes Against Children Task Force
KISS bassist Gene Simmons’ home was searched by police on Thursday (Aug 20) after a warrant was served by the LA Police Department’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. According to CNN, both the LAPD and a representative for Simmons have stated that neither Simmons nor any member of his family are considered suspects in the crime they’re investigating.
A statement from Simmons’ says the family was told by police that a crime “may have occurred on their property last year while Mr. Simmons was away on tour with KISS.”
Here is the statement from Simmons’ rep:
“Today (Aug. 20, 2015) members of the Los Angeles Police Department visited Mr. And Mrs. Simmons at their home to discuss a crime that may have occurred on their property last year while Mr. Simmons was away on tour with KISS. Neither Mr. Simmons nor any member of his family is a person of interest in the investigation and they are cooperating fully with the investigation. At this time, the police have requested that Mr. Simmons and his family not discuss the investigation publicly so as not to compromise it.”
