It was left in a neighbor's driveway and prompted a response from the LAPD's bomb squad. The package was found Saturday night, December 23, in the tony Bel Air neighborhood after it was dropped off at a neighbor's house.

The LAPD bomb squad was on the scene and has blocked off the road near the location, but no evacuations were called, police said.

The bomb squad X-rayed the package, which was wrapped in holiday paper, and opened it to reveal the contents, she said.

Police said the Secret Service was taking over the investigation.

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***.

The Treasury Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment Sunday. Reports suggest that no one was evacuated from the area.

Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt, Mnuchin's neighbor and widower of the late Zsa Zsa Gabor, said he was stuck in his house for two hours because of the package.

The Bel Air neighborhood is filled with multimillion-dollar mansions and is home to many celebrities.
