Are you sure that it's not the normal 3:01am cron jobs:
# # Perform daily/weekly/monthly maintenance.
# 1 3 * * * root periodic daily
# 15 4 * * 6 root periodic weekly
# 30 5 1 * * root periodic monthly
The daily script does a 'find' as part of it's system security audit.
That is likely what you are seeing.
