MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The FBI says a pair of ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland in "The Wizard of Oz" that was stolen from a Minnesota museum was recovered in a sting operation.

The slippers were taken from the Judy Garland Museum in Grand Rapids, Minnesota, in 2005.

The FBI says a man approached the company that insured the slippers and said he could help recover them. The agency says it was an extortion plot.
