Hidden Cash To Make Drops In The Inland Empire And L.A. Today, With 'Biggest Ever' Tomorrow

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

The enigmatic, Internet-savvy purveyor of free money will sojourn into the Inland Empire this morning and swing back into L.A. this later evening to dish out the goods. On Thursday the man otherwise known as Jason Buzi made his drop in Whittier's William Penn Park, and yesterday treated O.C. residents with another beach scavenger hunt in Huntington Beach. Last night his drop at Kenneth Hahn Park didn't go so well because he showed up a little late. But his "biggest ever" is in store for tomorrow, he tweeted:

Sadly, sugar packets aren't nearly as fun as Angry Birds or bottles of bubbles.

So far the only clue has given out about the location of today's drops was one aimed at Dad Rock Aficionados in the Inland Empire, of which we are sure there are many.

All signs point towards Riverside.

(Oh, and by the way, that song was originally by Robert Johnson, just another blues musician Led Zeppelin borrowed wholesale from)

As for tomorrow's drops, will residents of downtown and/or Diamond Bar be in for a his "biggest ever" treat tomorrow?

Have fun, stay safe, and once again don't do anything stupid.
