A package containing what appeared to be an explosive device was found in a mail box outside the NY residence of billionaire financier George Soros on Monday, police said. The package appeared to be an explosive device, police said.

An employee at the home in Katonah, New York, opened the package, revealing what appeared to be an explosive device.

Bedford police said the FBI's terrorism task force was investigating.

The employee put the package in a wooded area and called police.

Neither local nor federal authorities would say whether the object was capable of exploding, but The New York Times reported it was detonated by bomb squad technicians.

After authorities were contacted, an "extensive investigation" involving the Bedford Police Department, the Westchester County Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the FBI, commenced.

The FBI commented on the device, saying: "There is no threat to public safety, and we have no further comment at this time".

Soros, 88, has donated at least $18 million to his charity, the Open Society Foundations, which works to promote democracies in countries around the world, according to the organization's website.

The wealthy liberal donor started his philanthropic efforts in 1979, but his contributions have not always been welcomed.

Republican Representative from Florida Matt Gaetz also accused the billionaire of funding the migrant caravan that is moving towards the US-Mexico border.
