Actor Mark Salling, famous for his role as Noah Puckerman in hit show Glee, has been arrested on suspicion of possessing child pornography, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The 33-year-old was taken into custody in the Sunland, north of Los Angeles.

The actor's home was searched by the LAPD's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, which allegedly found hundreds of indecent images involving children, CNN reports.

His bail was set at $20,000.

According to gossip website TMZ, the police department was tipped off by one of Salling's ex-girlfriends.

It's the second time this year Salling has been in trouble with the law after he was sued by former partner, Roxanne Gorzela for sexual battery.

The pair settled the case for an alleged US$2.7 million earlier this year and the sexual battery case was dropped.
