Gene Simmons is not the next Jared Fogle, despite this scary police search warrant

Police issued a search warrant for the home of Gene Simmons after probable cause was found for an absolutely awful crime.

The Los Angeles Police Department’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force searched the Simmons family residence Thursday over an undisclosed crime — but by the name of the task force, all signs point to child porn.

Luckily, the KISS rocker and his family are not suspects in any crime; rather, police believe they too are victims.

"No one in the Simmons family is a suspect in this investigation," an LAPD official told NBC News.

A representative for Simmons confirmed that the search took place and said that the rock star was away on tour when the alleged crime was thought to have taken place.

"[Police] visited Mr. and Mrs. Simmons at their home to discuss a crime that may have occurred on their property last year while Mr. Simmons was away on tour with KISS," the rep said in a statement.

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

Of course, that didn't stop Simmons and his wife Shannon Tweed from tweeting about it. Simmons stuck to retweeting news stories that highlighted the fact that he and his family are not suspects, while Tweed thanked fans for their support and denied reports that anything criminal was found on their home computers.
