Utah toddler shreds $1,000 in cash, parents say

In the mean time, the Belnaps "hope everyone had a laugh at the story" and they're reassuring concerned readers that Leo will not be allowed near the paper shredder until he is older.

Ben and Jackee Belnap, of Utah, are working to replace more than $1 000 in cash that their 2-year-old son sent through the shredder.

"Leo helps me shred junk mail and just things with our name on it, or important documents we want to get rid of".

The Belnaps have been saving up money for the past year to pay Ben's parents back for University of Utah football season tickets.

They finally hit their target last week - but when the couple went to dig out the envelope, were horrified to discover what had happened to it.

They started tearing the house apart to search for the cash - under the rugs, in the drawers, in the couch, even in the garbage, News4Utah reported. "I've never heard of a kid shredding a grand", Leo's father said of the money they had been saving for a year. The process could take up to two years.

The Belnap family's savings have taken a considerable blow after their toddler, Leo, placed $1000 worth of notes through an electronic shredder.

"I'm digging through the trash and she hollers and says, 'I found it, '" Ben told the news station, referring to Jackee.

"We just, for like five minutes, we just shuffled through it, not talking".

As the couple emptied the container, their money tumbled out like confetti.

The US Department of Treasury said the money could potentially be returned to the family.

The currency "must be forwarded to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing for examination by trained experts before any redemption is made", the website says.
