St. Louis police did not respond to my request asking to get a department official on record calling the crooks pictured here "Ding Dongs." So, I'll have to do it myself.

Though I gotta say: I'm a little disappointed that they stand accused of robbery and not soliciting prostitution at the Hostess store -- in which case they'd be Ho Hos!

Okay, so where am I going with this? Oh, yeah. The St. Louis police department is asking the public for help identifying two individuals (better pics after the jump) who robbed the Hostess Brand Store at 6301 Broadway around 4:45 p.m. August 18.

According to police, the male suspect went to the register as if to purchase a soda. When the clerk opened the register, his female accomplice forced the clerk to the ground as he looted the cash drawer.

He's described as around 5' 7", 150 pounds and in his mid-30s. She's described as around 5' 4", late 20s and around 125 pounds. Anyone with information leading to their arrest could earn a $1,000 reward by calling CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS.

A thousand bucks? Now that's a lot of Twinkies.
