WESTMINSTER, Calif., March 31 (UPI) -- A California woman convicted of using a credit line in someone else's name to obtain $12,000 in plastic surgery was sentenced to six months in jail.

Yvonne Jean Pampellonne, 30, of Laguna Beach, dubbed the "Breast Implant Bandit," pleaded guilty to burglary, grand theft and identity theft for using another woman's personal information to obtain surgery including breast implants and liposuction at the Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery in Huntington Beach in September 2008, KTLA-TV, Los Angeles, reported Wednesday.

Pampellonne was sentenced Monday in Westminster, Calif., to 180 days in jail and three years of probation. She was also ordered to pay back the money for the implants.

Police tracked down Pampellonne in March 2009 using the serial numbers from her old implants, which she had removed when the new ones were installed.
