The Douglas County (Colorado) Sheriff's Department have searched the home of Denver Nuggets center Chris Andersen as part of an investigation conducted by the Internet Crimes Against Children unit.
Andersen, more commonly known as "Birdman", was at home when police showed up and according to investigators "fully cooperated" with the sheriffs.
It is not known what was seized from Andersen's home, but the items in question were sent to the Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory. The lab is located near Denver and is run by both the FBI and local law enforcement agencies.
An investigation into Andersen started in February when a law enforcement agency in California tipped off the Sheriff's Department. Details are not being released at this time due to the ongoing investigation. It could take the lab weeks to search hard drives and other materials related to the case.
The Denver Nuggets have no responded to the allegations.
Andersen's agent and attorney, Mark Bryant, issued a statement that said: "At this time, I respect the process and I have no further comment to protect the integrity of everyone involved. We'll proceed from there."
