ALPENA, Mich. — We have an update on yesterday’s story about two Saginaw men who drove to Alpena and were arrested after selling salt in place of methamphetamine.

22–year–old John Harvey Gaddy and 17–year–old Duron Louis Lowe were arrested and lodged at the Alpena County Jail after a drug deal gone wrong.

The two men traveled to Alpena to sell salt in place of meth to two Alpena females.

Lowe and Gaddy remain lodged at the Alpena County Jail where they are awaiting representation.
