NYC Terror Suspects Have Drug Arrest History
The couple found harboring explosives in the West Village were busted with heroin in February.
Although rumors of "terrorist activity" swirled after a young New York couple were recently arrested for keeping high-powered explosives in their swanky West Village apartment, cops quickly dismissed the two as "well-to-do junkies," chalking up their criminal activity to drug use. New evidence has now surfaced to support these claims: Morgan Gliedman, 27, and Aaron Greene, 31, were also arrested together last February, when an officer spotted the couple and another woman doing illegal drugs in a car. Greene was injecting heroin while the woman snorted the drug. When cops approached the vehicle, they found empty heroin bags on the floor, marijuana and a digital scale with heroin residue in one of the women’s purses. Greene also admitted that he had an unregistered rifle in the trunk and was ultimately sentenced to five months in jail. And just five days before that, Gliedman allegedly stole a man's backpack which contained a laptop computer, cellphone, wallet and credit cards, which she later used to make purchases. She has not been charged with theft in that case. Gliedman, a new mother, was due to complete pre-trial probation for drug possession next week, but it's likely that the case will be reopened now that police have found the explosives at her apartment, along with two shotguns, ammunition and several pages titled “The Terrorist Encyclopedia.”
