A Texas Panhandle prosecutor already facing various drug charges is back in trouble with the law.

District Attorney Richard Roach was arrested earlier in January at the Gray County Courthouse in Pampa on meth charges. Now, federal officials have found more than 35 firearms in his office, home and apartment. They also found what appears to be a stash of cocaine, meth, and marijuana. It's not known if Roach legally owned the guns.

If convicted on all counts, Roach faces up to 51 years in prison.
