The daughter of a prominent New York doctorÂ and her Occupy Wall Street-organizer boyfriend were arrested after policeÂ discovered an explosive used for making bombs and a cache of weapons in theirÂ upscale New York City apartment, it was claimed.
Morgan Gliedman, 27, and Aaron Greene, 31,Â were taken away from their home in Manhattan’s pricey Greenwich Village onÂ Saturday.
Gliedman, who is nine months pregnant, is theÂ daughter of a top Brooklyn cancer doctor and was educated at the Dalton School,Â an exclusive New York prep school attended by the likes of Anderson Cooper andÂ Claire Danes.
Greene went to Harvard University for hisÂ undergraduate degree and did graduate work at the Kennedy School of GovernmentÂ there, as well.
The New York Post reports that police foundÂ seven grams of HMTD, a high explosive powder that was reportedly used in theÂ 2005 London Underground bombings.
Officers discovered bomb-making instructions,Â including one document titled ‘The Terrorist Encyclopedia,’ according to theÂ newspaper
Police evacuated the building and severalÂ others nearby as the bomb squad removed to highly-unstable material from theÂ apartment.
Officers also found a flare gun that could beÂ used as a grenade launcher, a modified Mossberg 500 12-gauge shotgun, nineÂ high-capacity rifle magazines and ammunition, according to the Post.
Police confiscated several notebooks withÂ instructions for making boobytraps and makeshift submachine guns and severalÂ sheets with handwritten chemical formulas.
Greene is an activist with Occupy Wall StreetÂ and friends told police his political views are ‘extreme,’ a source told theÂ newspaper.
The NYPD told MailOnline they areÂ investigating whether Gleidman has ties to the protest group, asÂ well.
The NYPD allegedly found the dangerousÂ material after they went to Gliedman and Greene’s apartment to questionÂ Gliedman, who was wanted for credit card theft, the Post reports.
Gleidman’s father is Dr Paul Gleidman, theÂ Columbia University-educated director of radiation oncology at Beth IsraelÂ Hospital’s Brooklyn division.
Her mother is Susyn Schops Gliedman, a topÂ New York real estate agent.
