Greenwich Village couple busted with cache of weapons, bombmaking explosives: sources

From New York Post

The privileged daughter of a prominent city doctor, and her boyfriend — a Harvard grad and Occupy Wall Street activist — have been busted for allegedly having a cache of weapons and a bombmaking explosive in their Greenwich Village apartment.
Morgan Gliedman — who is nine-months pregnant — and her baby daddy, Aaron Greene, 31, also had instructions on making bombs, including a stack of papers with a cover sheet titled, “The Terrorist Encyclopedia,’’ sources told The Post yesterday.
People who know Greene say his political views are “extreme,” the sources said.
Cops found the stash in the couple’s West Ninth Street home Saturday when they went there to look for Gliedman, 27, who was wanted for alleged credit-card theft.

A detective discovered a plastic container with seven grams of a white chemical powder called HMTD, which is so powerful, cops evacuated several nearby buildings.

Meanwhile a Gothamist article says that the cops originally found the explosives in an ashtray....ah ha....
As if an explosion in SoHo weren't fun enough today, three buildings in Greenwich Village were apparently evacuated this morning after cops found what they believe was explosive powder in one apartment.
Cops went to a residence on 9th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues at around 8:20 a.m. today to look for a woman, when they say they saw some suspicious white powder in an ashtray. They brought the powder to a police firing range for testing, and also reportedly found a shotgun along with two handgun magazine clips.
The street was partially blocked off, and three buildings were evacuated as a safety precaution. Two people, a man and a woman, are reportedly in custody, but police said they had no information when we contacted them. We will update when more information becomes available.
