Los Angeles - 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 on Thursday at the Simmons home in Benedict Canyon near Beverly Hills.

Jenal says the detectives involved want to emphasise that Simmons and his family were "extremely cooperative" and none of them are suspected of a crime.

Police would give no further comment on the investigation.

Phone and e-mail messages to Simmons' publicist were not immediately returned.
