Strong incorrectly wrote "Mrs. Mnuchin", which could refer to the secretary's wife, who has become a target of hatred for her ostentatious displays of wealth.
Robby Strong, a Los Angeles psychologist, told AL.com that he was behind the prank that shut down streets in L.A.'s affluent Bel-Air neighborhood as a police bomb squad responded to a report of a suspicious package.
"It was a gift-wrapped package of poo, something a frat boy may do to another frat boy", he said. (Facebook) The box was packed with horse manure.
Afterward, at least three officers could be seen standing around the pile, shining flashlights on the manure and moving it around with their feet, presumably to check whether anything else might be hidden in it. The Secret Service picked up the box to further investigate.

"We can't get out", Von Anhalt, an entrepreneur and husband of the late actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, told the news station Saturday night. "That's bad, they have to find another way". It was left in a neighbor's driveway and prompted a response from the LAPD's bomb squad.
