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.

The New York post reported that Aaron Greene was a member of Occupy Wall Street. According to the UK Daily Mail, the New York Post reported that Greene was a member of Occupy Wall Street, though an NYPD spokesman told MailOnline that his connection to the group was still being investigated.

According to DNA INFO:

The pregnant ex-prep schooler and her activist boyfriend kept a cache of weapons inside their apartment, including an explosive chemical and a how-to guide to terrorism, according to a criminal complaint.

Morgan Gliedman, the 27-year-old daughter of a prominent Manhattan doctor, and Aaron Greene were busted Saturday at 6 p.m. when cops with a search warrant raided their Greenwich Village apartment on West 9th Street, the complaint says.

Cops, including members of the NYPD’s intelligence division, recovered a plastic container of HMTD, a highly explosive powdery substance used for making bombs, according to the complaint in Manhattan Criminal Court.

Gliedman, who grew up on Park Avenue, and Greene are also accused of having chemical precursors to HMTD, a sawed-off shotgun and multiple rounds of ammunition in their bedroom.

Cops also found sheets of paper with the cover page entitled “the terrorist encyclopedia,” the complaint says. The couple also allegedly had instructions on manufacturing explosive materials and bombs.

The two are charged with criminal possession of a weapon in the first and second degree. The criminal complaint says the pair intended to use the explosive and the shotgun against someone or property.

Greene, 31, was arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court on Sunday, sources said. Gliedman has not yet been arraigned. The Daily News reported that her arraignment was delayed because she had gone into labor.
