Court questions bank robbery suspect’s mental health

The Lubbock federal court might determine the question of a bank robbery suspect's mental health on Friday afternoon.  A competency hearing is scheduled at that time.

Graciano Quezada, 36, of New Mexico, is charged with the robbery of a Lubbock Wells Fargo branch back in February.

Lubbock police said at the time that Quezada held both a bank teller and at least one bank customer at gunpoint.  Police also say Quezada led them on a high speed chase all the way out of town and into Lynn County where he was arrested.

Both the prosecution and the defense have raised questions about Quezada's mental health.  Quezada was to go before the judge on this issue back on July 1stbut this was delayed.
