“This morning, New Castle PD assisted the FBI, Secret Service and the Westchester County Police with the investigation of a suspicious package. The matter is currently under federal investigation,” said New Castle police as reported in a statement by the newspaper.
“The U.S. Secret Service has intercepted two suspicious packages addressed to Secret Service protectees,” it added.
One of the two devices was reported to have been addressed to former Barrack Obama, while the other was addressed to Hillary Clinton.
“The packages were immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive devices and were appropriately handled as such,” the newspaper reported the Secret Service as saying.
“The Secret Service has initiated a full scope criminal investigation that will leverage all available federal, state, and local resources to determine the source of the packages and identify those responsible.”
A day earlier, another such package was found at the mailbox of George Soros’ house. An employee has taken out the package from the mailbox and found the device. He then immediately informed the Bedford police after placing it in a nearby wooden area.
The bomb squad detonated the device, which had black powder on it. The 88-year, however, wasn’t present at his home during the incident, said The New York Times.
