The Booby Prize

Fake boob theft lands woman in jail

30-year-old Yvonne Jean Pampellonne, of Westminster in Orange County, California, fraudulently used a line of credit set up in someone else's name to pay for the $12,000 procedures at the Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery in Huntington Beach.

She was sentenced on Monday to 180 days in jail and placed on probation for three years, after she pleaded guilty tosecond-degree burglary, grand theft and identity theft. She was also told to pay restitution, although the amount is not yet clear.

After she had the cosmetic surgery, Pampellonne never returned to the clinic for follow-up appointments. She was identified via a photo line-up, according to the Daily Breeze newspaper.
