Gene Simmons’ Home Searched by Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force – ABC News
The home of KISS legend Gene Simmons was reportedly searched by the Los Angeles Police Departmentâ€™s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force Thursday, though the rock icon is not a suspect in any crime.
LAPD searched Simmons’ Beverly Hills home and the family cooperated with authorities, police told ABC station KABC-TV.
A rep for Simmons and his family told KABC that police came to the 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.”
The rocker, 65, has not discussed details of the incident but retweeted from his official account all the articles written about him that clear his family of any potential wrongdoing, writing in one of them “FOR THE RECORD.”
His wife, Shannon Tweed Simmons, also tweeted, “We couldn’t be more horrified that someone used our residence for such heinous crimes. Law enforcement is on it.”
Goodnight and don’t forget to change your passwords!!
