Felony Criminal Charges Filed Against the "Breast Implant Bandit"

Posted By Robert Bernstein || 5-Jun-2009

An Orange County, CA woman has been accused of using a false identity to obtain new breast implants from a plastic surgeon. Yvonne Jean Pampellonne, 30, nicknamed the 'Breast Implant Bandit', is now facing three felony charges, including commercial burglary, grand theft and identity theft.

Pampellone surrendered to police in March after detectives caught up with her using breast implant tracking numbers. Police say that in September of 2008 Pampellonne used the personal information of another woman to establish a line of credit at the Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery in Huntington Beach.

Doctors performed $12,000 in liposuction and breast augmentation surgery at the center, police say, charging $12,000 to the phony line of credit and exchanging her existing implants for new ones.

Burglary, grand theft and identity theft are felony criminal offenses under California law and are punishable by state prison sentences.
