Good morning, 

They aren’t in Kansas, but they’re back in the right hands: after a 13-year hunt, a pair of ruby slippers from the 1939 film “The Wizard of Oz” have been recovered, FBI officials said Tuesday. 

The slippers, one of four known pairs that were worn by Judy Garland as Dorothy in the 1939 classic, were stolen from a museum dedicated to the actress in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, in 2005, CNN reported.

The slippers were recovered during the summer as part of an undercover FBI operation in Minneapolis, officials said.

"There's a certain romance in these types of schemes, sometimes sophistication, but at the end of the day it's a theft," North Dakota United States Attorney Christopher Myers said.
