SECRET SERVICE STATEMENT REGARDING INTERCEPTION OF SUSPICIOUS PACKAGES:

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Secret Service has intercepted two suspicious packages addressed to Secret Service
protectees.
Late on October 23, 2018, the Secret Service recovered a single package addressed to Former First Lady Hillary
Clinton in Westchester County, New York. Early this morning, October 24, 2018, a second package addressed
to the residence of Former President Barack Obama was intercepted by Secret Service personnel in Washington,
DC.
The packages were immediately identified during routine mail screening procedures as potential explosive
devices and were appropriately handled as such. Both packages were intercepted prior to being delivered to
their intended location. The protectees did not receive the packages nor were they at risk of receiving them.
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.
