A 2-year-old shredded $1,060 of his family’s cash. His mom cried — until she laughed.

This past week parents are scrambling to figure out how they will replace more than $1,000 that was sent through the shredder by their 2-year-old son.

The money was being saved up to pay back Ben’s parents for the University of Utah football season tickets. Ben and Jackee Belnap had said.

Somehow the envelope where there was $1,060 saved to pay back their parents had gone missing. They started to search the house immediately.

Jackee was digging through the trash and looking everywhere when she noticed something in their personal home shredder. Low and behold the money was in there all shredded up.

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

Apparently, Leo must have put the envelope in the shredder when they weren’t looking.

All hope is not lost though, as they may be able to get their money back from a government office that deals with mutilated cash. But that will take anywhere from one to two years.

Moral of the story, don’t use an office shredder period. Use Mobile Record Shredders to keep your identity safe.
