SoCal Boob Bandit Gets Jail Time, Probation

A woman pursued a new look and someone else's identity, according to investigators

An Orange County woman's new look will cost her six months in jail.

Yvonne Jean Pampellonne, dubbed "the SoCal Boob Bandit" last year, was sentenced Monday in Westminster for using a fraudulent line of credit to obtain $12,000 in cosmetic surgery, including breast implants and liposuction.

The 30-year-old Laguna Niguel woman had pleaded guilty to burglary, grand theft and identity theft. She was sentenced to 180 days in jail and was placed on three years' probation.

Restitution was also ordered by the Westminster judge, but the amount wasn't immediately clear.

Pampellonne was accused of opening a line of credit in someone else's name in September 2008, having the procedures and then never showing up for any follow-up appointments, police said.

Dr. Larry Nichter, who performed the surgery at the Pacific Center For Plastic Surgery, used identification numbers on the old set of implants to track down the original surgeon. Employees at the center were able to confirm the identity of Pampellonne as a suspect after viewing a photograph line-up, police said.
