Bomb squad responds to manure-filled package sent to Mnuchin's LA home

LAPD Confirms Someone Sent Horse Manure in Holiday Gift Wrap to US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin

A bit of horseplay forced the hand of a Los Angeles bomb squad Saturday night after a suspicious Christmas gift-wrapped package was found on the doorstep of the Bel-Air home of Steve Mnuchin.

Officials said the package was delivered to his neighbors in Bel Air.

No evacuations were ordered, but the street was closed while authorities examined the large box.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin received a package over the weekend, but what was inside was less than festive.

The LAPD said the Secret Service took over the investigation.

The package label said the givers were"The American People

LAPD officers, the bomb squad and the Secret Service poured into the area.

According to the New York Post, the "gift" also included a card that referenced President Donald Trump and the recently passed tax bill.

According to police, the package was wrapped like a present.

A neighbor said residents were kept inside their homes for about two hours during the investigation. It is unclear if Mnuchin or his wife Louise Linton were home at the time of the incident.

Police eventually determined the package did not contain an explosive device, and the scene was cleared around 9:30 p.m. PT.
