Everybody's favorite Internet benefactor is making his return to L.A. this Thursday, fresh off a drop in San Diego on Sunday morning.

In addition Los Angeles, the mysterious real estate mogul behind @HiddenCash tweeted that he also plans on sharing the wealth in Fresno, Orange County and the Inland Empire this week:

On Sunday morning, Hidden Cash hid 25 Pez dispensers containing either $50, $60, or $100 in the sand at San Diego's Pacific Beach, in a treasure hunt reminiscent of the Angry Birds buried in Hermosa Beach at the end of May.

Crowds gathered at the beach and poked around in the sand, digging up the colorful candy dispensers full of cash. As usual, the @HiddenCash account retweeted many of the lucky ones selfie-ing with their prizes.

No word yet on where he plans on dropping the cash in L.A., the O.C., or I.E., but as always he's bound to tweet clues beforehand. Have fun finding the prizes, Angelenos, but for the love of God don't do anything stupid.
