Bullock suspect 'had weapons stash'

A man who pleaded not guilty to breaking into the home of actress Sandra Bullock has been charged with possessing an arsenal of heavy weapons said to have been found at his home.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office charged Joshua Corbett with 19 felony counts including seven counts of possessing a machine gun, two counts of possessing an assault weapon and 10 counts of possessing a destructive device - described as tracer ammunition.

Corbett pleaded not guilty and bail was set at two million dollars (£1.1m).

There is no claim that Corbett brought weapons when police say he jumped over Bullock's fence and broke into her home on June 8.

If convicted of the new charges, Corbett could face up to 12 years in prison.
