LOS ANGELES, CA – Mark Salling, 33, was charged in a federal indictment with receiving and possessing child pornography on his laptop computer and a flash memory drive, according to a news release by federal prosecutors.

Salling, best known for his role as Noah Puckerman on “Glee,” was named in a two-count indictment returned this afternoon by a federal grand jury.

Investigators say a laptop, a hard drive, and a USB fash drive were seized from Salling’s home in December 2015, and the devices contained thousands of images and videos depicting child pornography.

Salling, through his attorney, has agreed to surrender to federal authorities on June 3 to face the charges in the indictment. He is expected to be arraigned on the indictment on that date.
