It was a scavenger hunt that had many people running around Indianapolis, looking for money.  Now, we know who was behind the fun giveaway.

Radio Now 100.9 (WNOU-FM) morning DJ Kyle Smelser announced on his morning radio show that he was the one behind the Twitter handle "@HiddenCashIndy".  Smelser say it was fun to give away the money and to give back to the community where he grew up.  Smelser says he's gave out over $3,000 during the scavenger hunt.

Smelser's Twitter account follows several others that have popped up nationwide, starting in California, where Twitter followers used clues to find stashes of money.

Other hidden cash clues have been reported in Chicago, Milwaukee and Fargo, North Dakota.
