Officials said the package was delivered to his neighbors in Bel Air.

A Los Angeles Department bomb squad responded to a Bel-Air neighborhood Saturday night due to a suspicious package addressed to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

Investigators cleared the package of any unsafe content by 8 p.m.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, right, and his wife Louise Linton, left, react as Mnuchin holds up a sheet of new $1 bills, the first currency notes bearing his and U.S. Treasurer Jovita Carranza's signatures, at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington.

A Christmas card was also inside the package, making some reference to Mnuchin and President Donald Trump, multiple sources told NBC.


The package was signed as being from "the American people", according to KABC.

US Secret Service told CNN they were aware of the incident but referred all questions to the LAPD.

LAPD West Los Angeles Area Watch Commander Rob Weise reported that Mnuchin was not forced to evacuate his home. He was inside his home at the time.

"We have $50 million homes and we can't move, we can't get out", Prince Frederick von Anhalt, who was trapped for two hours, said.
