LAPD serves search warrant at Gene Simmons’ home
(Aug. 20, 2015)– A search warrant was served at the home of Kiss bassist Gene Simmons, the Los Angeles Police Department said.
The warrant executed on Thursday was by the department’s division that handles online crimes against children, according to Lt. John Jenal of the Los Angeles Police Department.
“No members of the Simmons family are suspects in the case and were extremely cooperative,” he said.
A representative for Simmons confirmed to KTLA in a statement that police came to the family’s home Thursday “to discuss a crime that may have occurred on their property last year while Simmons was away on tour.”
Authorities did not provide additional information, citing an ongoing investigation.
Simmons is best known as a front man and co-founder of the rock band Kiss, but he wears many hats, including record producer and songwriter.
He also starred in a reality television show on A&E, “Gene Simmons Family Jewels,” which documented life with his wife and children.
