Mark Salling, known for his role as Noah “Puck” Puckerman on the Fox TV show “Glee,” was arrested Tuesday at his Sunland home on suspicion of possessing child pornography.

The 33-year-old actor was arrested by officers assigned to the L.A. Regional Internet Crimes Against Children Task force.

“His arrest did not come about as part of an online sting,” said Los Angeles Police Department Lt. Andrea Grossman said. “Salling’s arrest came about through a tip from a confidential informant.”

Grossman is the officer-in-charge of the task force, which is based in Long Beach and operates within the Department of Homeland Security.

Detectives confiscated “electronic media” during Salling’s arrest, but Grossman said details of what was seized must come from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

“I just can’t go into any more details about the investigation or what was taken from the home,” Grossman said.

The L.A. Regional Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, she said, is one of 61 such federal task forces across the country. It covers Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange and San Bernardino counties and includes 69 law enforcement agencies, Grossman said.

The arrest took place at Salling’s home in the 9900 block of Helen Avenue at 9 a.m., according to LAPD Officer Jenny Houser.

“Detectives served a search warrant at his home and then placed him under arrest for possession of child pornography,” Houser said.

Salling was released at 2:26 p.m. after posting $20,000 bail, according to sheriff’s online inmate records. He’s due in court in downtown Los Angeles on Jan. 22, according to the sheriff’s department.

Salling’s publicist did not return a call for comment on her client’s arrest, which was first reported by the TV show “Crime Watch Daily.”

According to his Internet profile, the Dallas-born Salling is also a singer/songwriter.

His other credits included the 2014 TV movie “Rocky Road,” a 2006 film, “The Graveyard,” and the 1996 film, “Children of the Corn IV: The Gathering.”
