Grand Rapids, MN Police Chief Leigh Serfling says his department is continuing its search for the size 6B red shoes stolen from a local museum in 2005. Besides various witches and bitches, there’s a Ruby Slipper Fan Club sure to keep coppers busy.
The bejeweled footwear is officially valued at one million dollars US. (The most recent sale price of another pair of Judy’s Oz slippers, however, were sold at auction at Christie’s for $666,000 in 2000).
Can a knock off pair be far behind at Target?
