"Woman Arrested in Kidnapping Hoax"

If you try to fake your sister's abduction -- your twin sister -- make sure she's not asleep nearby first.
A woman who claimed she witnessed the kidnapping of her twin sister was arrested by police early Wednesday.

Police said the woman told officers that she and her sister were standing outside a home in the 9100 block of Ranch Corner when a man in a pickup pulled up, forced her sister into the truck and took off with her.

Police took the woman's claim seriously and launched a search for the woman and the pickup.

But officers soon figured out that the woman's story wasn't adding up and found the sister asleep at home, police said.
