Mystery person leaves gift-wrapped manure for Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin

BEL AIR, California -- A bomb squad was called to the home of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin over a mysterious package, but it turned out to be manure.

A neighbor discovered the Christmas-themed package in the driveway of the Mnuchins' Bel-Air mansion Saturday and called police.

When the bomb squad opened the gift, they found what they called a 'pretty good quantity' of horse manure.

The Secret Service picked up the box to further investigate. No evacuations were ordered and the scene was cleared.

Police said the package was marked as being from "the American people."
