  • A suspicious gift-wrapped box was left on Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin's Bel-AIr driveway

The Mnuchin's have a home in Bel Air and law enforcement scrambled to his address Saturday night after a suspicious package addressed to the Treasury Secretary was found in a neighbor's driveway.

Police say the package was delivered in Christmas wrapping and the sender was listed as "The American people". As it turns out, the "gift" ending up being a nice package of horse poop.

Before being sworn in as part of the Trump Administration in February, Mnuchin worked as the finance chairman for Donald Trump's campaign for president.

The package was cleared later that evening after it became apparent that Mnuchin was sent a box full of horse manure, not explosives.

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.
