HOUSTON (KRLD) - 29-year-old Rachel Childs of Pearland hired a caretaker to watch over her autistic twin. But there was no twin. 

Pearland police officer Jason Wells says following Childs' instructions, the caregiver picked up the "twin" and took her to her home to spend the night late last month. 

After one visit, the caregiver became suspicious because the woman did not behave like someone with autism.  She told them the "twin" tried to engage in "sexually oriented conduct."

She also checked out Childs' background and learned she is an only child and then contacted police.  

Because Childs was at the caregiver's home on false pretenses, she's charged with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit assault.  She is also charged with indecent exposure
