The daughter of a prominent New York doctor  and her Occupy Wall Street-organizer boyfriend were arrested after police  discovered an explosive used for making bombs and a cache of weapons in their  upscale New York City apartment, it was claimed.

Morgan Gliedman, 27, and Aaron Greene, 31,  were taken away from their home in Manhattan’s pricey Greenwich Village on  Saturday.

Gliedman, who is nine months pregnant, is the  daughter of a top Brooklyn cancer doctor and was educated at the Dalton School,  an exclusive New York prep school attended by the likes of Anderson Cooper and  Claire Danes.

Greene went to Harvard University for his  undergraduate degree and did graduate work at the Kennedy School of Government  there, as well.

The New York Post reports that police found  seven grams of HMTD, a high explosive powder that was reportedly used in the  2005 London Underground bombings.

Officers discovered bomb-making instructions,  including one document titled ‘The Terrorist Encyclopedia,’ according to the  newspaper

Police evacuated the building and several  others nearby as the bomb squad removed to highly-unstable material from the  apartment.

Officers also found a flare gun that could be  used as a grenade launcher, a modified Mossberg 500 12-gauge shotgun, nine  high-capacity rifle magazines and ammunition, according to the Post.

Police confiscated several notebooks with  instructions for making boobytraps and makeshift submachine guns and several  sheets with handwritten chemical formulas.

Greene is an activist with Occupy Wall Street  and friends told police his political views are ‘extreme,’ a source told the  newspaper.

The NYPD told MailOnline they are  investigating whether Gleidman has ties to the protest group, as  well.

The NYPD allegedly found the dangerous  material after they went to Gliedman and Greene’s apartment to question  Gliedman, who was wanted for credit card theft, the Post reports.

Gleidman’s father is Dr Paul Gleidman, the  Columbia University-educated director of radiation oncology at Beth Israel  Hospital’s Brooklyn division.

Her mother is Susyn Schops Gliedman, a top  New York real estate agent.
