A young married couple was arrested after a 31-mile chase involving speeds in excess of 100 mph that ended in Harford County last week.

The chase started in Baltimore County with Maryland Transportation Authority Police in pursuit and ended on I-95 in the area of exit 80 in Riverside around 6:25 p.m. Oct. 26, according to state police at the JFK Barrack.

Police began the pursuit because they believed the car was stolen, according to state police.

Police chased the car for 31 miles; it allegedly caused two vehicle collisions on the highway, according to Assistant State’s Attorney Chris Smith.

Vincente L. Wynder-Garcia, 23, was driving when police stopped the car.

His wife, 19-year-old Erica Darlene Wynder-Garcia, was a passenger in the car. They have two children, ages 2 years and 6 months.

During his bail review hearing in Harford County District Court last Wednesday, Vincente Wynder-Garcia said the car was not stolen, the key was in his possession and his mom had cosigned on the car.

Vincente Wynder-Garcia, of the 3900 block of Sonora Place in Alexandria, Va., was charged Oct. 26 with theft between $10,000 and $100,000, unlawfully taking a motor vehicle, possession of marijuana, failure of driver to drive to curb upon signal by police, negligent driving, exceeding 102 mph in a 65 mph zone, attempting to elude police by failing to stop, failure to obey properly placed traffic control device instructions, reckless driving, negligent driving in careless and imprudent manner and unsafe lane change. His traffic citations are from Baltimore City and County.

He was being held Tuesday at the Harford County Detention Center on $75,000 bail.
