DENVER -- Douglas County sheriff's deputies have searched the home of popular Denver Nuggets center Chris "Birdman" Andersen.
Sheriff's spokesman Ron Hanavan confirmed that the search took place Thursday as part of an investigation conducted by the department's Internet Crimes Against Children unit. Andersen has not been arrested and Hanavan said no arrest warrant has been issued.
The department began investigating Andersen in February after receiving information from a law enforcement agency in California. Hanavan declined to release details, including the nature of any pending charges, citing an ongoing investigation. He says they're asking that the case be sealed.
The Denver Nuggets had no immediate comment.
A message left at Andersen's home wasn't immediately returned Thursday.
