Is the man accused of robbing a Lubbock branch of Wells Fargo Bank competent to stand trial?  We might get the answer to that question on July 1st when Graciano Quezada goes back to federal court for a competency hearing. 

Court records filed Monday say, "The Court … has received a mental health evaluation of the Defendant from the Metropolitan Correctional Center, San Diego, California…"  Specific details of the evaluation are not listed. 

Quezada is accused of holding up the bank at gunpoint on February 21st.  Immediately following the robbery at 4323 50th Street, Lubbock Police say he led them on a high-speed chase that ended in Lynn County.

Prosecutors and Quezada's own defense lawyer together raised the issue of whether or not he was competent to stand trial.  Court records say Quezada has a history of mental health issues.
