— The NYPD is looking for a woman who stole replicas of the ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland in "The Wizard of Oz."

They say the shoes were removed from a display case of a Staten Island hotel earlier this month.

The sparkly slippers are valued at more than $2,000.

The suspect was caught on a surveillance tape taking the shoes from the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel.

Police ask anyone with information about the theft to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
