Stolen ruby slippers used in Wizard of Oz recovered by FBI

5 September 2018

A pair of ruby slippers worth millions was stolen from a Judy Garland museum 13 years ago. It was featured in the movie "The Wizard of Oz". Now it have been recovered in Minneapolis, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said on Tuesday.  

FBI SPECIAL AGENT, JILL SANBORN  said  "Well we've gathered lots of information on this case. We believe there's lots more to give. There's always intelligence that can be gleaned from the actual theft to the motive in helping us piece that puzzle together. Our hope today is that folks that are watching this, if you know something about the theft, something about where the slippers have been these past 13 years, that you come forward and share that with us."

 In 2015 an anonymous fan of the film offered a $1 million reward for their safe return.
