Police are looking for a woman who walked out of a hotel on Staten Island with a replica of Judy Garland's ruby slippers from 'The Wizard of Oz.'

The sparkly slippers are valued at $2,500. The robbery occurred on March 3 at approximately 2 a.m. at 1100 South Avenue.

The suspect was caught on surveillance cameras in the lobby of the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel with the shoes that were inside a display case, said police.

A photo taken from surveillance footage was released by police on Friday. It clearly shows a blonde woman wearing a gray scarf and light colored jacket carrying items in both hands. 

The iconic slippers from which the stolen pair were modeled were worn by 'Dorothy' played by legendary actress Judy Garland in one of Hollywood's most well known films.

Police ask anyone with information about the theft to contact the NYPD Crime Stoppers at any of the following:
