HOLLADAY, UT (KSL) A Utah couple says their toddler shredded an envelope containing more than $1,000 in cash.
Ben and Jackee Belnap consider themselves diehard Utah Utes football fans.
After saving for about a year, they finally had enough money to pay back a family member for their season tickets.
But this past weekend, the envelope disappeared.
After careful and tearful consideration, the couple realized their 2-year-old son Leo had shredded the envelope.
It turns out the couple might not be out all that money. There is a government office that deals with mutilated cash.
“I called the guy the next morning and he said, ‘Oh, we might be able to help you here,’ and I was shocked,” Ben said. “He said, ‘Bag it up in little Ziploc bags, mail it to D.C., and in one to two years, you’ll get your money back.’”
