Pez dispensers full of cash wash up on beach in San Diego

Sunday, July 6th, 2014
Issue 27, Volume 18.

Pez dispensers full of money turned up buried in the sands of Pacific Beach today, as the San Francisco man with too much money sprinkled San Diego beaches with cash for the first time. "No need to go up the hill," tweeted @HiddenCash, referring to the bluff above the beach. "They're all buried in the the sand." Twitter users found dispensers with $50, $60 and $100 in them, according to TV reporters who hustled out to the beach. KUSI 9News interviewed a teenaged girl who said she looked for five minutes before finding one of the candy dispensers, with $50 in it.

By 10:30, the Twitter feed began filling up with pictures of very happy San Diegans, clutching cash.

Earlier today, the HiddenCash feed tweeted a picture of Pez candy dispensers with money in them and claimed to have hidden 25 of the dispensers somewhere in San Diego. At 9:47 a.m. the Bay Area real estate investor with too much money tweeted the location. "San Diego: Which beach you ask? This one: Many people like theirs with jam. I've always preferred honey."

the Tweet referred to Pacific Beach, commonly referred to by San Diegans as PB -- as in "PB and J."

HiddenCash first tweeted on Friday that they would be coming to San Diego. In the feed's first Tweet today, filed at 8:02 a.m., HiddenCash posted a picture of the small red Pez cylinders with plastic cartoon characters on top. "San Diego: which one do you want to find?" was the tantalizing message. "We hid 25. Clues soon ..."

The mystery unraveled throughout the morning. At 9:33 a.m. HiddenCash tweeted "It's going to be a fun day at the beach in San Diego." Seven minutes later the feed tweeted "SD: They are buried in the sand and it will be a while til all are found. So head on over. Next clue shortly." Seven minutes later it was finally revealed that they were hidden at Pacific Beach. The unknown benefactor finished by tweeting that he planned to sprinkle cash in Fresno Monday, and in Los Angeles and Orange counties and the Inland Empire starting Thursday. @Hidden Cash seemed to be enjoying the spectacle. "Stay sexy, Sandy Ego," he tweeted.
