WHITTIER, Calif. (AP) - When the man with the Twitter handle @HiddenCash moved his scavenger hunt to Whittier, California, a thousand people trampled through Penn Park seeking free money.

Now Jason Buzi, the Bay Area real estate investor behind the cash giveaways, says he will pay for the damage.

KNBC-TV reported Tuesday (http://bit.ly/1so2Xdu ) Buzi has agreed to send the city of Whittier $5,000 to cover the cost of repairs.

City Manager Jeff Collier says cash hunters trampled on plants, uprooted a newly planted tree, tore apart sprinkler heads and broke fences.

Collier says Buzi was apologetic and Whittier appreciates his gesture.

Through Twitter, Buzi has directed people to envelopes with $50 and $100 inside them in San Francisco and across Southern California in recent months.

Buzi calls his giveaways a "social experiment for good."
