A Florida couple is flashing their pearly whites at the law.

The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office shared a photo of Matthew White and Amber Taynor after their arrest on Thursday. White and Taynor can be seen grinning from ear to ear as they pose with deputies in tactical gear.

The couple is accused of leading deputies on a chase in a stolen car.

A deputy spotted the vehicle in an area near I-95 and S.R. 40 and attempted to conduct an investigative stop. Deputies said White continued driving before eventually being stopped by stop sticks. 

The couple abandoned the vehicle and ran away, but were found by deputies a short time later.

In addition to several warrants, White was charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle, tampering with physical evidence, possession of cocaine, possession of cannabis >20 grams, driving while license suspended, theft and possession of narcotics paraphernalia, deputies said.

Taynor was charged with possession of heroin and possession of narcotics paraphernalia in addition to her warrants.
