Police Found An Arsenal of Weapons in His Home.

On Wednesday, the man who's been accused of breaking into Sandra Bullock‘s home was charged with possession of an arsenal of weapons, TheWrap has learned. He pleaded not guilty to 19 felony weapons charges, which police found in his home.

Joshua Corbett was charged with 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.

During a search of the 39-year-old suspect's Montrose, California, home in connection with the burglary, authorities discovered the stash of weapons, leading to 19 felony counts, including seven counts of possession of a machine gun, two counts of possession of an illegal assault weapon, and 10 counts of possession of a destructive device.

He has also pleaded not guilty to previous charges of burglary, stalking and possession of a machine gun, in relation to the alleged break-in at Sandra Bullock‘s home.

On Wednesday, prosecutors asked that his bail be increased from $185,000 to $2 million.

It is alleged that Corbett climbed a chain-link fence topped with barbed wire to gain access to Bullock's property — just hours after she returned from the Spike TV's Guys Choice Awards. The star, 49, and her 4-year-old son were inside, according to the Today show, when he entered the house through a back door at 1 a.m. Corbett, who is said to have kept a diary on the Oscar winner, spent about an hour in the house before a 911 call was placed and police arrived and arrested him.

Bullock, the star of such films as "The Blind Side" and this year's Academy Award-winner "Gravity," was at home during the alleged break-in but prosecutors said Corbett was not in possession of the machine gun at the time of the break-in.

A message left with Corbett's attorney, Stephen Sitkoff, was not immediately returned. Sitkoff has said that Corbett suffers from serious mental health issues and did not intend to harm Bullock.

Corbett faces up to seven years and four months in prison if convicted on the three earlier felony counts as well as an additional maximum prison term of 12 years for the new counts.
