The package - which contained horse manure - was dropped off at a neighbor's house.
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. The package was found Saturday night, December 23, in the tony Bel Air neighborhood after it was dropped off at a neighbor's house.
According to CNN affiliate ABC7, the package was from "the American people".
The LAPD bomb squad responded to the home after a neighbor reported seeing a package wrapped in Christmas wrapping paper left on the Mnuchin's driveway.
Police cleared the scene and said the investigation has been handed over to the U.S. Secret Service. A Secret Service spokesman said the agency was aware of the incident but declined to comment further.
Someone in the neighborhood reportedly received a suspicious package addressed to Mnuchin, according to the LAPD. Authorities said that no one was evacuated from the area at any point.
The Bel Air neighborhood is filled with multimillion-dollar mansions and is home to many celebrities.
