Pitts will be held without bail until she undergoes a mental competency evaluation. “I don’t usually move for a competency evaluation without a good reason,” Villa told reporters. “What you saw in the courtroom is a good reason why.”According to court documents, Pitts handed the teller a note stating she had a weapon and demanded cash.
