Certainly news about a search warrant executed by the Douglas County internet Crimes Against Children at the home of Denver Nuggets' forward Chris Andersen is troubling news, but with few details released about the investigation there shouldn't be a rush to judgment on the player's involvement or lack thereof in what is going on.
The Douglas County Sheriff's Office has released a statement on the issue:
WHAT: Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Executes Search Warrant At Larkspur Residence
NARRATIVE: On 05/10/12 The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) executed a Search warrant at Christopher C. Andersen (33 YO) residence in Larkspur CO.
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) unit began investigating Andersen in February 2012 in reference information that was provided by a law enforcement agency in California.
Douglas County Sheriff’s Office took over the criminal investigation at that time.
DCSO has recovered property from the residence that we believe is connected to this case.
This is a search warrant and no arrests have been made.
This is an active and on-going investigation and no further information is available at this time.
The release specifically mentions that it began investigating Andersen back in February, but as the Denver Post reports, there is at least one other person residing at the house. Could this other person be involved in the case or is Andersen the main target? We will need to wait and see.
