NEW YORK (AP) - A Manhattan couple was facing weapons charges Monday
after authorities said they found a substance used to make bombs and
papers titled "The Terrorist Encyclopedia" in their Greenwich Village
Morgan Gliedman, 27, and her 31-year-old boyfriend,
Aaron Greene, were arrested on weapons-possession charges Saturday
after officers with a search warrant discovered a plastic container with
7 grams of HMTD, a highly explosive white powder used in bomb making,
police and prosecutors said.
Also found in the living room were numerous written
items containing instructions on the manufacture of explosive materials
and bombs, including a collection of pages that had a cover page
entitled "The Terrorist Encyclopedia," court papers said.
According to the court papers, chemical precursors to HMTD also were found in the living room.
Greene was held without bail after he appeared in
state court in Manhattan on Sunday. Gliedman, who is nine months
pregnant, was awaiting an initial court appearance. It was not clear who
will represent her in court.
"The whole situation's sad," said attorney Lisa
Pelosi, who represented Greene. She declined further comment. He is due
back in court Friday.
The New York Post reported in its Monday editions
that Gliedman is the daughter of a prominent Manhattan doctor. It
described her boyfriend as a Harvard graduate and an Occupy Wall Street
The newspaper said police went to the apartment
with a search warrant stemming from a credit card-theft case. It said
weapons recovered included a flare launcher, a commercial replica of a
grenade launcher, a 12-gauge shotgun, ammunition and nine high-capacity
