Prosecutors have filed felony burglary and stalking charges against a man accused of breaking in to Sandra Bullock's house while the Oscar-winning actress was at home. 

The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office also charged Joshua James Corbett, 39, with felony possession of a machine gun, although prosecutors say he did not have the gun while on Bullock's property.

A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department told FOX411 the gun was found at Corbett's home after a search warrant was executed. 

Police say he jumped the fence at Bullock's Los Angeles home around 1 a.m. and broke into her house.

Corbett is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday. He remains in custody in lieu of $50,000 bail, but prosecutors are asking to increase that amount to $185,000.

If convicted, he faces up to seven years and four months in prison.
