Natasha Martin and Carlyle Curry -- aka the "Ding Dong" bandits -- were taken into custody Wednesday shortly after media (including Daily RFT) released surveillance photo of the couple allegedly robbing a Hostess Store last month on North Broadway.

Martin, 31 of 7600 block of Virginia, stands accused of hitting up the store on April 24, June 30, July 9 and August 18. In the latest robbery, Martin allegedly pushed a sales clerk to the floor as Curry robbed the register.

Curry, 36 also of the 7600 block of Virginia, has been charged with second-degree robbery for the August 18 theft. He's also accused of participating in the June 30 robbery of the store.
