The Los Angeles Police Department searched the home of KISS frontman Gene Simmons on Thursday, NBC News reports.

The LAPD's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force conducted the raid, though police did not discuss details of the investigation beyond the clearing of Simmons' name. "No one in the Simmons family is a suspect in this investigation," an LAPD official said.

According to a representative for Simmons, the police are investigating a crime that may have occurred on their property last year while the bassist was on tour with KISS. "At this time, the police have requested that Mr. Simmons and his family not discuss the investigation publicly so as not to compromise it," the rep said in a statement.
