A man and his girlfriend, who gave birth under arrest, are facing weapons charges after police say they found a powerful substance used to make bombs and an arsenal of weapons in their New York City apartment.

Morgan Gliedman, 27, and Aaron Greene, 31, were arrested Saturday in their Manhattan apartment after officers with a search warrant found 7 grams of HMTD, a highly explosive white powder used in bomb making. Police also seized a flare launcher, a sawed-off shotgun, nine rifle magazines and various how-to manuals on building bombs and booby traps.

"They had a terrorist encyclopedia, they had improvised and modified firearms, deadly homemade weapons, a do it yourself machine gun..." New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Monday.

Kelly was unsure how much damage 7 grams of HMTD would cause.

Potential targets or a motive for having these items has not been determined. Police say the couple has no known links to any terrorist organizations.

Greene's lawyer, Lisa Pelosi, told ABC News her client has entered a plea of not guilty and is being held without bail. Greene, a Harvard graduate, is expected back in court Jan. 4.

Maybe they are survivalists turned heroin addicts since the Apocalypse didn't happen.

The 7 grams of HMTD was not for doing damage. It was the primary charge to set off a larger quantity of secondary explosive. But who knows what the hell all that was for. Hard drug addicts start living like darwin award nominees after awhile.
