SIOUX CITY | A man charged with robbing a Sioux City credit union has been found mentally competent to stand trial.

The case against Joshua Webbs, 22, of Sioux City, had been suspended since October, when a judge ordered Webbs to undergo an examination to determine if he had any mental health disorders preventing him from understanding the charges filed against him and being able to assist in his defense.

According to court documents, an evaluation report filed Dec. 6 in Woodbury County District Court declared Webbs fit to stand trial.

A trial has been scheduled for March 20.

Webbs has pleaded not guilty to first-degree robbery and operating a vehicle without owner's consent.

Webbs is accused of robbing the Municipal Credit Union, 103 S. Fairmount St., on May 2. According to court documents, Webbs entered the business, handed a teller a note that demanded money and lifted up his clothing to display a handgun. He fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash. He turned himself in to police later that day after his identity was released to local media.
