MARKHAM | Two men who were wanted in conjunction with crimes in Harvey will make their initial court appearances for bond hearings Friday at the Sixth District Cook County Circuit Courthouse.
Michael Reid, 37, of Alsip, and Christopher Chandler, 22, of Harvey, both were arrested this week by Cook County sheriff’s police.
Officials were unable to process the two in time to get them into court on Thursday for a bond hearing, according to the state’s attorney’s office, which said both will appear in court Friday morning.
An arrest warrant for Reid on a murder charge was issued in May, and officers from the sheriff’s Central Warrant Unit took him into custody Wednesday in a hotel room in the 1300 block of Sibley Boulevard in Dolton.
Reid also is wanted for an unlawful use of a weapon charge in Matteson. The warrant for that incident was issued in July 2012.
Sheriff’s police said in a prepared statement they received information Tuesday from the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force that Reid was in Harvey.
With the help of the Harvey Police Department, sheriff’s police searched a neighborhood around 150th Street and Hoyne Avenue. During that search, they were tipped that Reid might be at the Dolton hotel where he ultimately was found.
During the search in Harvey, officers also found Chandler, who was wanted on an arrest warrant for suspected concealment of a homicidal death case pending in Harvey.
