Officers issued a warrant at the home in the 2600 block of Benedict Canyon Drive, near Beverly Hills, around 7 a.m.
Simmons and his family members are not suspected in any crimes, LAPD said. The family cooperated fully with authorities.
No further information about the investigation was immediately available.
However, a representative for Simmons released this statement:
"Today (Aug. 20, 2015) members of the Los Angeles Police Department 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. 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."
His wife also thanked fans for their support on Twitter.
Thanks for your support. We couldn't be more horrified that someone used our residence for such heinous crimes. Law enforcement is on it.— Mrs ShannonTSimmons (@shannonleetweed) August 21, 2015
