A Six-Year-Old Girl Hijacked Her Mom’s Phone To Order $250 of Pokémon Merch

When Santa doesn’t fulfill all the wishes on your Christmas list, there’s only one reasonable solution: hijack your mom’s phone and embark a online shopping spree.

In the case of 6-year-old Ashlynd Howland, that meant a racking up a bill to the tune of the $250–in nothing but Pokémon toys. Girl knows what she likes.

But how did the tot manage such a sneaky feat? Per SF Gate, the tiny thief waited until her mom was asleep, then used her thumbprint (of her mother’s UNCONSCIOUS BODY, to be clear) to unlock the phone and begin her Pokémon haul. When Ashlynd’s mom, upon waking, discovered 13 purchase confirmation emails from the Pokémon website, she assumed she’d been hacked. But she was soon corrected.

“No, Mommy, I was shopping,” Ashlyn told her. “But don’t worry—everything that I ordered is coming straight to the house.”

And all but 4 items were final sale. Well played, Ashlyn, well played. That’s some heist-level shit. Maybe she could join the squad of OCEAN’S 8?
