Wednesday, July 31, 2013
—A 37-year-old man wanted in connection with a Harvey murder was apprehended this morning in Dolton, Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart said today.
Members of the Sheriff’s Central Warrant Unit took Michael Reid of Alsip into custody at approximately 5:40 a.m. today at a hotel room in the 1300 block of Sibley Boulevard in Dolton. The warrant for his arrest for murder was issued in May of this year.
Reid also has an arrest warrant for unlawful use of a weapon from Matteson that was issued in July 2012.
Central Warrant Unit officers received information on Tuesday afternoon from the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force that Reid may be in the vicinity of the 15000 block of Hoyne Avenue in Harvey. Harvey Police, Sheriff’s Police, and Central Warrant Unit members searched the neighborhood block by block looking for Reid. During their search, investigators learned that Reid may be staying in a hotel in Dolton.
Officers also located and arrested Christopher Chandler, 22, of Harvey during their search on Tuesday. Chandler was wanted for concealment of a homicidal death stemming from a Harvey Police Department case.
Sheriff Dart reminds the public that the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty by the government in a court of law.
