From 'the American People': US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin Gets Package of Manure

Someone sent a package wrapped in holiday gift paper and filled with horse manure that was addressed to United States Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and placed on a street in Bel-Air, the Los Angeles Police Department said Saturday evening.

Authorities, including the Secret Service and a Los Angeles Police Department bomb squad, responded, according to the TV station.

LAPD Sgt. R. Briggs said authorities determined that there was no threat to the Mnuchin family.

The LAPD's bomb squad and Secret Service were wrapping up their investigation of the package at the Bel-Air home.


Mnuchin, who KNBC said was not home when the package was discovered, is a former Goldman Sachs Group Inc executive and Hollywood film financier.

No additional information has been released on the package's contents.

The package was found at a neighbor's home but was addressed to Mnuchin, which police say raised alarm bells.

His wife, Louise Linton, once went viral for belittling a woman on Instagram for making less money than her, and later this year, the couple again made headlines when they posed with a sheet of money in a photo widely mocked on social media.

Bel Air Road was closed during the investigation, but the scene was cleared at 8 p.m. Saturday.
