Bullock Stalker Charged With Gun Possession

BEL AIR—The man responsible for breaking into actress Sandra Bullock’s Bel Air residence on June 8 is facing additional charges for gun possession. Joshua James Corbett, 39, was arraigned at the Foltz Criminal Justice Center in Department 30 on June 18.

He was charged with possession of an arsenal of weapons that included a half dozen machine guns, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office indicated in a press release. Prosecutors asked for the suspect’s bail to be set at $2 million based on the new complaint. Authorities discovered the weapons at Corbett’s residence after the LAPD searched his home.

He is being charged with 19 felony counts, 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 suspect plead not guilty to stalking and burglarizing Bullock’s home last week. If convicted of the new charges, Corbett could spend up to 12 years in county jail.
