Leaving a series of clues, someone using the Twitter hashtag #SdCashBoss said money was left today in La Jolla for anyone to find.
"There will be 4 separate drops this morning," said a Tweet posted about 9 a.m. "Get your running shoes ready."
The first drop was made south of the Children's Pool, one Tweet said. Other clues were the nearest address was 555 Coast Blvd. and "it's a big bowl."
Replying to one person, SdCashBoss said: "You've been so close! That Old Spice your wearing must be burning your eyes & u can't see? ... BTW: Old Spice is no longer Kewl!"
The mystery benefactor apparently is one of several leaving hidden cash in San Diego -- and elsewhere in the country.
U-T San Diego in late May identified other leading local Twitter feeds in the craze as @sdcashstash, @HiddenCashSD, @SDHiddenCash and @MoolahHunter.
San Francisco-based @HiddenCash started the fad in the Bay Area.
