The Belnap family saved all year to buy tickets for the University of Utah football season and finally had enough.
When the white envelope with the $1,060 disappeared, they started frantically searching for it.
It turns out the culprit was their 2-year-old son Leo. The toddler destroyed it all in their shredding machine.
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. pic.twitter.com/93R9BWAVDE— BB (@Benbelnap) October 2, 2018
Leo's parents say even though they were upset, they couldn't help but laugh at the situation.
"Most people they say, 'Oh, a kid drew crayon on the wall or something.' I've never heard of a kid shredding a grand," Ben Belnap said.
They are planning to send the shredded bills to Washington, D.C., and have been told they may be able to get it replaced -- but the process could take up to two years.
