A suspicious package addressed to Robert De Niro in Manhattan was removed by the New York City Police Department bomb squad on Thursday after similar mailers were sent to prominent Democrats across the country this week.

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.
