LARKSPUR, Colo. – Investigators in Douglas County released additional details Friday about the investigation involving Denver Nuggets center Chris “Birdman” Andersen.
Agents with the Internet Crimes Against Children unit executed a search warrant at Andersen’s Larkspur home on Thursday.
“(The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office) has recovered property from Mr. Andersen’s residence that we believe is connected to this case,” public information officer Sgt. Ron Hanavan said Friday. “Some of the property which includes electronic devices is being sent to the Rocky Mountain Regional Computer Forensics Laboratory (RMRCFL) for forensic examination.”
Hanavan reiterated that Andersen, 33, was not under arrest as of Friday.
“We want to reiterate that a search warrant was executed and no arrests have been made and no individual(s) are being identified as the focus of this investigation.”
Andersen’s lawyer told the Denver Post Friday that his client is the victim of an extortion plot involving a fan who sent him photographs of herself in 2010.
The Denver Nuggets, who travel to Los Angeles to play the Lakers in Game 7 of the Western Conference playoffs on Saturday, have “excused” Andersen from all team activities.
