HARVEY | An Alsip man suspected of a murder in Harvey was arrested Wednesday morning by Cook County Sheriff's police following a block-by-block search of a neighborhood around Hoyne Avenue.

Michael Reid, 37, was later taken into custody at 5:40 a.m. at a hotel in the 1300 block of Sibley Boulevard, in Dolton, according to the Cook County Sheriff's Office. Police had received a tip that Reid might be in the Harvey neighborhood, and while searching there police learned he might be staying at the Dolton hotel.

In addition to being wanted on an arrest warrant for suspected murder issued in May, Reid also was wanted on an arrest warrant for unlawful use of a weapon from Matteson that was issued in July 2012.

Sheriff's police were assisted by Harvey police and Central Warrant Unit members in apprehending Reid. The FBI Violent Crimes Task Force delivered the tip that Reid might be in the Hoyne Avenue neighborhood.

During their search of that neighborhood, police also found and arrested Christopher Chandler, 22, of Harvey, who was wanted on an arrest warrant for suspected concealment of a homicidal death as a result of a Harvey police investigation.
