Chloe of Wainuiomata: National Icon

Update

Stuff reports how Chloe of Wainuiomata has been caught shop lifting!

-

Chloe Jane Perovic, 47, was granted diversion in Napier District Court for stealing $23.62 worth of pet products from Napier's Pak'n'Save supermarket last Thursday.

The case was adjourned to June 4, a date she will have to keep only if she has not met the conditions of her agreement with the police.

In 1994, as Chloe Reeves, she shot to nationwide attention after appearing in her tiger slippers on Gary McCormick's Heartland television series.

The show sparked complaints from Wainuiomata residents who felt Chloe gave an unfavourable impression of their suburb.

Maybe she was trying to feed her tiger slippers??
