Actor Mark Salling, best known for his role as Noah “Puck” Puckerman on “Glee,” has been arrested on suspicion of possessing child pornography.

Los Angeles police assigned to the Internet Crimes Against Children task force arrested Salling, 33, at his home in the Sunland neighborhood on Tuesday, KCBS-TV reported. “Detectives served a search warrant at his home and then placed him under arrest for possession of child pornography,” LAPD Officer Jenny Houser told reporters. Salling was booked and processed on the charge, she added.

The syndicated TV series “Crime Watch Daily” first reported the arrest. Billy Jensen, a correspondent for the show, told the CBS-owned news-radio station KNX-AM that police reportedly acted on a tip from a friend or “possibly a girlfriend of his,” adding, “As far as what they found, the number is in the hundreds of images,” said Jensen. “We haven’t heard anything about videos or anything like that.”

TMZ.com said that according to law-enforcement sources, images found on Salling’s computer were of children younger than midteens.

Jensen told KNX that in 2013, Salling was accused of forcible sex without a condom, which Salling denied. TMZ said the case was settled, without giving details.
