2-Year-Old Boy Shreds Parents’ $1k Savings

A Utah family says their toddler shredded an envelope containing more than $1,000 in cash meant to pay for football season tickets.

Boy Shreds money

Ben and Jackee Belnap were saving the cash to reimburse Ben’s parents for University of Utah season football tickets. They had $1,060 in an envelope, which disappeared over the weekend.

Ben tells KSL-TV the couple started searching the house when Jackee hollered, “I found it.” She was holding the shredder.

Their 2-year-old son, Leo, helps his mom shred junk mail or important documents that they want to get rid of. He apparently got his hands on the envelope.

The shredded money was noticed by the boy’s parents’ who were tearing the house apart to search for the cash — under the rugs, in the drawers, in the couch, even in the garbage. Sharing the news on Twitter, his father wrote:

“So me and my wife had been saving up to pay for our @Utah_Football tickets in cash. We pulled our money out yesterday to pay my mom for the season… Well we couldn’t find the envelope until my wife checked the shredder. Yup. 2 year old shredded $1,060.”

Ben contacted the Treasury Department and he said he was told to ship the shredded cash for possible replacement.

Jackee says it will make “a great wedding story one day.”
