Detroit is a city that could use a few extra bucks. At least, David Choe seems to think so. On Sunday, the Los Angeles-based graffiti artist told his Twitter and Facebook followers he had hidden $10,000 around the city, dollar bills and "a few hundos."
Made it into Canada tonight but hid 10,000$ in mostly 1's and a few hundos all over Detroit today. Enjoy - your friendly neighborhood gook

Choe is most famous for painting murals at Facebook's headquarters years ago -- he took stock instead of money for payment, and found himself a sudden millionaire when the company went public.
On Facebook, he posted a clue to one location -- if a photograph of a mattress on a nondescript, littered Detroit street can really be considered a clue.
"There was $$$ in that hole in that couch in Detroit earlier today, but who knows now," Choe wrote.Choe also revealed an international cash stash:
$$$ and prints hidden under the Golden Arches sign at the American/Canadian border of Detroit/Windsor but which side ?

Though dollar bills scattered all over the city won't do much for the financial situation of the city facing bankruptcy, it might improve some Detroiters' morale. After all, finding a dollar makes even the worst day better..
