KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - A northwestern Montana woman is charged with mailing a loaded gun, ammunition and other weapons to U.S. Sen. Jon Tester.

The Daily Inter Lake reports (https://bit.ly/1ChYK1A) 56-year-old Cathleen Roselyn Cantlon of Troy appeared in federal court in Missoula on July 1 and pleaded not guilty to interstate mailing of a firearm and ammunition and possession of a firearm after being committed to a mental health institution.

Court records say two packages believed mailed by Cantlon arrived at the U.S. Senate mail facility in Landover, Maryland in May. One contained a .22-caliber handgun, ammunition, a knife, pepper spray and a five-page letter that mentions mental health and banking issues. A second package included an envelope with the words “hazard contaminated/dirty bomb” written on it.

An investigation found that the mailed gun had been seized from Cantlon in October 2014 and later returned.
