Woman Stole "Wizard of Oz" Slippers From Hotel: NYPD

Police are looking for a woman who stole replicas of the ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland in the classic film “The Wizard of Oz” from a Staten Island hotel earlier this month.

The slippers, valued at about $2,000, were stolen from a display case in the lobby of the Hilton Garden Inn on South Avenue in the Bulls Head neighborhood on March 3.

After swiping the shoes, the woman was caught on surveillance cameras leaving the store.

Anyone with information about the theft is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
