The Los Angeles Police Department’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force conducted a search at the home of rock star Gene Simmons in Los Angeles on Thursday.

While authorities have said that the KISS bass guitarist, 65, and his family are not suspects, they would not reveal who the target of their investigation is, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Detectives went to the home on Thursday morning with a search warrant, Officer Mike Lopez told the Times.

According to NBC, a Simmons family representative said in a statement that the LAPD wanted to discuss a crime that could have occurred at Simmons’ residence last year while he was on tour with his band.

“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 statement read. “At this time, the police have requested that Mr. Simmons and his family not discuss the investigation publicly so as not to compromise it.”
