The suspect accused of attempting to break into Sandra Bullock's Los Angeles home has been hit with a slew of weapons charges after police allegedly found a stash of guns at his house.

Bullock's 'stalker' facing gun charges

Earlier this month, Joshua Corbett was taken into custody after he was allegedly caught trying to gain access to the Oscar winner's property while she was inside.

The 39-year-old was subsequently charged with felony counts of residential burglary, stalking and possession of a machine gun, and he pleaded not guilty during a court appearance in L.A.

The L.A. District Attorney has now charged Corbett with 19 more felonies, including seven counts of possession of a machine gun, two counts of possession of an assault weapon and 10 counts of possession of a destructive device.

The stash was allegedly discovered at Corbett's property. Authorities previously confirmed that Corbett was not in possession of any weapons at the time of the alleged incident at the actress' home.

A judge raised his bail from $185,000 (£110,445) to $2.2 million (£1.4 million) on Wednesday. If convicted, he could face 12 years behind bars.

Bullock has obtained a restraining order against Corbett.
