A hard lesson learned for a Utah couple to keep cash in the bank after their two year old son shreds more than a thousand dollars in the paper shredder! Ben and Jackee Belnap had been cash in an envelope to repay Ben's parents for buying football season tickets.  However the money went missing last weekend and the couple began frantically trying to find it. Ben recalls when he learned the fate of the cash.  While digging in the trash can to see if it was accidently tossed away, Jackee yells, "I found it." Ben notices his wife holding the shredder and she says, "I think the money is in here." Apparently their son loves to help shred junk mail and after digging through the pieces of paper, they found what used to be their cash of $1,060.  However there may be a silver lining as the Bureau of Engraving and Printing might be able re-issue the damaged money once the couple sends the shredded money to the money valuation department.  According to their web site, the agency spends around $30 million annually investigating and re-issue mutilated money. However the process can take up to two years before their couple gets their money back. The couple is taking it in stride with Jackee saying, "Well, this will make a great wedding story one day."
