Police investigate suspicious package sent to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin

Posted December 25, 2017

On Saturday, Trump's Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin got quite the surprise for the holidays.

According to CNN affiliate ABC7, the package was from "the American people".

R. Briggs described the contents of the package to be horse feces. An LAPD bomb squad was deployed to the scene.

The Los Angeles Police Department's bomb squad was called to the home and officers opened the box, finding a pile of horse manure inside. Fearing the worst, the Secret Service also became involved in the incident.

A Christmas card was also inside the package, making some reference to Mnuchin and President Donald Trump, multiple sources told NBC.

The report of the suspicious package prompted lengthy street closures and a sizable response by local and federal authorities. Police did not release further information about the package.

His comments came after he and and his wife, Scottish actress Louise Linton, visited the Bureau of Engraving and Printing to see some of the first dollar bills marked with Mnuchin's name. This past summer, Linton faced backlash after she bragged about her designer wardrobe on social media.
