“Glee” star Mark Salling was arrested by Los Angeles Police on child pornography charges Tuesday morning, December 29.

Salling, who plays Noah Puckerman in the hit television series Glee, was arrested after the LAPD’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force obtained a search warrant for his home in Sunland, California.

Cops searching Mark Salling’s computer found thousands of images of “child sexual exploitation”. Cops also siezed tablets, cellphones, and other electronic devices found in his home.

Images of children captured from Salling’s computer were found to be significantly younger than 15 and 16 year olds.

According to TMZ, Salling lives alone, which makes it difficult to argue that someone else put images in the computer.

It has been reported that Salling’s ex-girlfriend tipped off cops and they investigated before the raid to make sure it wasn’t a revenge allegation.
