The star, real name Robert Del Naja, was bailed by officers working on Operation Ore, the national crackdown on child porn.
Detectives seized computer equipment and a quantity of suspected drugs during a raid at Del Naja’s home in Bristol on Monday (February 25).
A spokesman for Avon And Somerset Police said: “A man in his 30s from Bristol was arrested on February 25 in connection with allegations of the possession of class A drugs and Internet porn offences.
“He was bailed pending further inquiries.”
The arrest was made under Avon And Somerset’s Operation Ricochet, part of Operation Ore, the national crackdown on child porn.
Del Naja told The Sun newspaper today (February 27): “I have never looked at child pornography in my life.
“I am co-operating fully with the police and I would aks everyone not to judge me prematurely. I have total faith in the justice system.”
