A years-long FBI investigation into the theft and whereabouts of the iconic red slippers worn by Judy Garland in “The Wizard of Oz” has ended with some good news.
Agents recovered the sparkly kicks, which were stolen in 2005 from the Judy Garland Museum in Grand Rapids, Minn., the FBI announced Tuesday.
Authorities from the Minneapolis FBI, the North Dakota U.S. Attorney’s Office and the Grand Rapids Police Department plan to divulge more details at a press conference later today.
It wasn’t immediately clear Tuesday morning how feds tracked down the iconic slippers, which were insured for $1 million.
