Update — Dec. 29, 4:30 p.m. ET:
According to TMZ, law enforcement sources revealed an ex-girlfriend tipped off the cops, who investigated the actor before the raid to make sure it wasn’t a revenge allegation.
Once inside, police seized Salling’s computer, where they found pictures of children significantly younger than 15 and 16, as well as his tablets and cellphones.
Salling who was “shocked” when police arrived, reportedly lives alone, which makes it hard to claim anyone else put the photos on his computer.
