NEW YORK (CBS) In the end, Yvonne Jean Pampellonne wasn't tripped up by her fingerprints or by her DNA. In a stroke of genius worthy of a "CSI" plot, detectives used the tracking numbers on her discarded breast implants to identify the woman who allegedly impersonated another when she went into a Huntington Beach, California clinic to undergo thousands of dollars in surgery to exchange her old implants for fresh ones.

Pampellonne, who is charged with grand theft, identity theft and burglary is scheduled for arraignment today.
