    A wanted southeast Iowa criminal appears to be engaging with Henry County deputies on social media this week.

    In a Facebook post published Tuesday, the Henry County Sheriff's Office requested the public's assistance in tracking down two wanted suspects.

    The post included mugshots of Justice Wade Christensen, 20, and Sasha Mariah Noel, 26, both of New London, saying the suspects are considered armed and dangerous.

    Facebook user "Justice Christensen" commented on the department's post Tuesday, saying: "I need a new picture." In another comment, the same user taunted deputies for not catching him.

    Christensen is wanted for violating his probation in October 2018. Noel is accused of violating her parole. Both suspects have lengthy criminal records, which include previous felony charges of burglary and theft.

    Noel was convicted of felony theft and burglary, which stem from separate incidents reported in Des Moines County sometime between 2016 and 2017. In 2016, Christensen was convicted of a felony controlled substance violation.

    Anyone with information about each suspect's whereabouts is asked to call the Henry County Sheriff's Office at (319) 385-2712.
