LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Los Angeles police say a task force investigating Internet crimes against children served a search warrant at the home of Kiss rocker Gene Simmons, but neither Simmons nor anyone in his family is suspected in the case.

Lt. John Jenal says the warrant was served Thursday at the Simmons home in Benedict Canyon near Beverly Hills.

Jenal says the detectives involved want to emphasize that Simmons and his family were "extremely co-operative" and none of them are suspected of a crime.

Police would give no further comment on the investigation.

Phone and email messages to Simmons' publicist were not immediately returned.

The 65-year-old Simmons has been a central member of Kiss since the early 1970s. His family was the subject of a reality TV series that aired for several years.
