Police have busted the daughter of an upscale Manhattan family and her boyfriend for allegedly hoarding weapons and bomb-making materials, the New York Post reports. Morgan Gliedman, 27, and Aaron Greene, 31, also had bombing instructions—like papers labeled "The Terrorist Encyclopedia"—when police came looking for her over alleged credit-card theft. Also in their Greenwich Village stash: a 12-gauge shotgun, high-capacity rifle magazines, and enough chemical explosives that police evacuated nearby buildings.

It's all a far cry from Gliedman's Park Avenue upbringing. Her father, Paul Gliedman, is head of radiation oncology at a Brooklyn hospital and was named a top city doctor by New York magazine in 2011. Morgan went on to graduate from Dalton in 2002 while Greene studied at Harvard, including grad work at the Kennedy School of Government. Sources say his politics are "extreme," and he has already faced police charges five times, including weapons possession and assault. Morgan is nine months pregnant with his baby.
