U.S. Treasury's Mnuchin Was Sent Gift-Wrapped Box of Horse Manure; Bomb Squad Called

A gift-giver hit it just right.

A gift-wrapped package addressed to U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s home in a posh Los Angeles neighborhood that was suspected of being a bomb was instead filled with horse manure, police told local media, according to Reuters.

The package was found Saturday evening in a next-door neighbor’s driveway in Bel Air, the Los Angeles Police Department told the Los Angeles Times and KNBC television.

According to Reuters, the package also included a Christmas card with negative comments about President Donald Trump and the new U.S. tax law signed by Trump.

An LAPD bomb squad X-rayed the package before opening it and found the horse manure inside.

A road in Bel Air was closed for about two hours, KNBC reported.
