Gift-wrapped poop sends bomb squad to Steven Mnuchin's Bel Air mansion

The Los Angeles Police Department's bomb squad was called to the home and officers opened the box, finding a pile of horse manure inside.

The Los Angeles Police Department's bomb squad was dispatched to the Bel-Air neighborhood of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin after receiving a report of a suspicious package addressed to the federal official.

The package was found outside of Mnuchin's next-door neighbor's house, police said.

Mnuchin became the 77 secretary of the U.S. Treasury in February, when the U.S. Senate confirmed his appointment by President Trump. The Secret Service was also involved in examining the horse excrement, because of Mnuchin's role as a cabinet member for President Donald Trump.

Shortly after its discovery and inspection, the Christmas present was removed from the scene.

At least one road in the area was shut down after the package was discovered.

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

Treasury Sect'y Steve Mnuchin and wife Louise must have been naughty this year - as some say - because he didn't even get coal for XMAS. he got a package of s***.
