NOVATO (KCBS) – Actor Ashton Kutcher accompanied investigators during a child porn sweep in Marin County on Thursday, acting as an observer for a non-profit foundation dedicating to eradicating child pornography.

Kutcher rode along with federal agents and officers from a variety of police agencies as they served arrest warrants at 7 homes in Novato, San Rafael and other parts of Marin County.

A spokesman for the San Jose police department said in a statement Kutcher was not allowed to enter the homes being raided or to participate in any way, in accordance with police policy and current case law.

Kutcher observed the raid conducted by the Silicon Valley Internet Crimes Against Children Task force, authorities said, because the organization he and his estranged wife founded, the Demi and Ashton Foundation, supports the goals of the multi-agency task force.

Authorities arrested at least three men and seized computers and other evidence police said that show the men circulated videos of prepubescent children having sex with adults.
