(Newser) – The well-to-do young woman arrested on weapons charges in New York City gave birth while in custody Saturday—and the Daily Mail reports today that Morgan Gliedman went into labor with daughter Melody as she was being handcuffed. Gliedman, 27, and boyfriend Aaron Greene, 31, were found with bomb-making materials and papers labeled "The Terrorist Encyclopedia" in their apartment, after police were tipped off by a couple who the duo let use their shower. But sources tell the Daily Beast the two are just "well-to-do junkies, not terrorists." And both have troubled pasts, the New York Post reports.

In February, Gliedman, the daughter of a top New York oncologist, met a man at a Manhattan bar and allegedly stole his laptop, cell phone, and wallet after going back to his place. She hasn't yet been charged in that case, but just five days later, she and Greene—who attended Harvard—were nabbed in a heroin bust with a gun on them. Greene was sentenced to five months in jail, while Gliedman was still on probation. It was due to end next week, but the case could now be re-opened in light of the new charges.

They had a 12 gauge shotgun and high capacity mags. Is that illegal in New York? Not here. They also had "explosive chemicals." We have to trust the police. However, under certain circumstances, law inforcement has been known to stretch the truth. Are we talking fully formed explosives or paint thinner?

Morgan Gliedman deserves her freedom. Anything so sweet shouldn't waste away in prison. Just sayin'...
