MARKHAM | An Alsip resident who was wanted on a three-month-old arrest warrant on a murder charge is now being held in Cook County Jail without bond.
Michael Reid, 37, was arrested Wednesday, taken into custody by the Cook County sheriff’s Central Warrant Unit at a motel in Dolton. He was wanted on the warrant that was issued in May, and also for an unlawful use of a weapon charge in Matteson from July 2012.
On Friday, he appeared before Associate Judge Darron Bowden, who ordered him held at the county jail.
“He’s not going anywhere,” said Pete Campbell, a spokesman for the Cook County state’s attorney’s office.
Reid is scheduled to appear at the 6th District Cook County Circuit Courthouse again on Aug. 22.
Cook County sheriff’s police said earlier this week they received information from the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force that Reid was in Harvey.
Sheriff’s and Harvey police searched the area around 150th Street and Hoyne Avenue when they were told that Reid might be staying at the Dolton hotel where he ultimately was found.
During the Harvey search for Reid, officials also found Christopher Chandler, 22, of Harvey, who was wanted on an arrest warrant for suspected concealment of a homicidal death case pending in Harvey.
Campbell said Friday that the state’s attorney had no record of when Chandler would appear in court.
