SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A 60-year-old western Massachusetts mother of four accused of running what authorities say was a crack cocaine delivery service from her pickup truck is due back in court next month.

The Republican reports (https://bit.ly/1M9DGwf ) that a judge continued the cocaine trafficking case against Springfield resident Donna McLeod to Sept. 8 after a pretrial hearing in mid-July.

McLeod pleaded not guilty in May to a cocaine trafficking charge and possessing ammunition without an FID card.

Prosecutors say police raided her apartment in May and seized about 1.6 ounces of packaged crack cocaine. They also found $407 in cash, several cellphones and two bullets.

Prosecutors say McLeod drove around the city making crack deliveries in a pickup.



Her lawyer has said the bullets were keepsakes from a military funeral.
