33 year old Mark Salling was arrested on Tuesday by LAPD on suspicion of possessing child pornography. Members of the LAPD Internet Crimes Against Children task force unit served a search warrant at his Sunland home at the 9900 block of Helen Avenue in Shadow Hills. According to CWD, the police used a battering ram to force entry into Salling’s residence Tuesday morning. Authorities say when they knocked on the door, announced their presence and called out Salling’s name he did not answer.
