Stolen ‘Wizard of Oz’ Ruby Slippers Returned 13 Years Later
More than a decade after being stolen, a pair of ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland in “The Wizard of Oz” have been recovered. They were taken from a glass case in The Judy Garland Museum in her hometown of Grand Rapids, Minnesota, in August 2005. The iconic shoes were insured for $1 million when they were stolen. In 2015, 10 years after the theft, a movie fan offered a reward of $1 million for the return of the stolen slippers, but their whereabouts remained a mystery until Monday.
