CNN — A search warrant was served at the home of Kiss bassist Gene Simmons, but the rocker and his family are not considered suspects, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

The division that handles online crimes against children executed the warrant on Thursday, 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.

Authorities did not provide additional information, citing an ongoing investigation.

The police visit was connected with a crime that may have occurred on the property last year while Simmons was away touring with his band, the rocker’s publicist, Cheyanne Baker, said in a statement.

Authorities requested Simmons and his family not to discuss the case publicly to avoid compromising the 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.
