Toddler shreds cash

A Utah area 2-year-old boy's advanced office skills are not impressing his parents. 

Salt Lake City area couple and diehard University of Utah football fans Ben and Jackee Belnap had been saving for the past year to pay back Ben's parents for football season tickets. 

On Sunday they noticied the envolope containing the saved $1060 had gone missing. 

After tearing apart the house searching for the cash they even checked the garbage. 

That's when Jackee says she found the cash in the shredder bin, in a thousand tiny pieces put there by her son Leo. 

Jackee had taught Leo how to use the shredder with junk mail and other paper. 

The Bureau of Engraving and Printing offers a solution in the event that a toddler destroys hundreds of dollars by accident.

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.

The couple is hoping the Bureau can return their money, but could be waiting up to three years.
