The daughter of a prominent New York City physician was arrested over the weekend with her Occupy Wall Street-organizer boyfriend in their upscale Greenwich Village apartment where police found a cache of weapons and bomb-making materials, according to the New York Post.
A child of privilege belonging to Manhattan's elite class, Morgan Gliedman, 27, was nine months pregnant and had been wanted on a credit-card theft charge. Aaron Greene, 31, the father of Gliedman's baby, is a Harvard graduate who did graduate work at the Kennedy School of Government and is known for his ties to the Occupy Wall Street movement.
According to the Post, the pair was found in possession of seven grams of HMTD, a highly explosive powder used to make bombs, causing police to immediately evacuate other tenants in the building as well as several adjacent residences while the bomb squad removed the material.
In addition to the HMTD, police also recovered a modified Mossberg 500 12-gauge shotgun, nine high-capacity rifle magazines with ammunition, and a flare launcher, a commercial replica of a grenade launcher.
Police said they also recovered a stack of materials entitled "The Terrorist Encyclopedia," which featured ways to create homemade booby traps and improvised submachine guns, in addition to several handwritten notebooks that contained various chemical formulas, according to the Post.
Greene has had five prior run-ins with the police, during which he faced several charges, including assault and weapons possession.
Gliedman, who grew up on Park Avenue and attended the exclusive Dalton school as a child, is the daughter of Dr. Paul Gleidman, director of radiation oncology at Beth Israel Hospital's Brooklyn division, and Susyn Schops Gliedman, a high-end NYC real estate agent with Prudential Douglas Elliman.
Both Gliedman and Greene were known as "extreme" in their politics according to sources who spoke to the Post.
The apartment is located just two blocks from the infamous Greenwich Village townhouse explosion of 1970, where members of the radical left Weather Underground accidently exploded a bomb killing three of its members and injuring two others, while leveling a four-story townhouse to rubble.
The Weather Underground bombs were intended to kill soldiers at Fort Dix, N.J., returning from the war in Vietnam.
