Village Bomb-Making Suspect Pleads Not Guilty
MANHATTAN SUPREME COURT — The new mom arrested for allegedly keeping bomb-making materials inside her West Ninth Street apartment pleaded not guilty Monday morning to weapons charges and learned that she has been indicted on previous grand larceny charges.
Appearing in two courtrooms, ex-prep schooler Morgan Gliedman, 27, pleaded not guilty to criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a loaded firearm.
Gliedman, who has been described by her lawyer as a recovering heroin addict, was arrested along with boyfriend Aaron Greene, 31, on Dec. 29 when police searched their apartment and found the highly explosive powder HMTD, a sawed-off shotgun and multiple rounds of ammunition, according to the criminal complaint.
Gliedman, who was ordered to complete a 30-day rehab program, also learned Monday that a grand jury has indicted her on four counts of grand larceny in the fourth degree for allegedly stealing property valued at more than $1,000 plus three credit cards.
The Dalton School graduate, who gave birth to a daughter shortly after her arrest, is accused of going home Feb. 27, 2012 with someone she met at a bar and stealing an IBM ThinkPad, MacBook Pro, iPhone, $80 cash and three credit cards from his East 31st Street apartment as he slept, according to the criminal complaint.
Gliedman is due back in court April 2.
