Earlier in the week, explosive devices targeted former president Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, businessman George Soros and Rep. Maxine Waters, according to The New York Times.
An NYPD rep told PEOPLE that the package was similar to the other suspicious packages and appeared to be from the same sender. A report about the suspicious package was called in at 5:00 a.m. local time, and authorities removed the package via the NYPD bomb truck at 6:30 a.m.
The address where the package was found, 375 Greenwich St., houses De Niro’s production company Tribeca Enterprises and restaurant Tribeca Grill, CNN reported. The package resembled previous packages in its return address, listed as Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and its six stamps with American flags.
The building was empty at the time, NBC News reported.
