Authorities responded to the home in Katonah, New York after receiving a call about a suspicious package at about 3:45 P.M., the Town of Bedford Police Department said in a statement.
An employee at the residence opened the package, revealing what appeared to be an explosive device. The employee put the package in a wooded area and called authorities, police said.
Bomb squad technicians arrived and detonated it, a police official told the New York Times.
Online records showed that Soros resides at the address. He was not home at the time, the New York Times reported.
“The components were there for an explosive device,” said the official, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to publicly discuss the continuing investigation. “It was not a hoax device.”
