An Auburn man has been sentenced to 63 months in prison for cocaine trafficking, according to acting U.S. Attorney Richard W. Murphy.

Derrick Favreau, 33, was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Portland by Chief Judge Nancy Torresen.

Favreau will be under three years of supervised release after he serves his prison term. He was also fined $5,000. Favreau pleaded guilty to the charges in July.

According to court records, in May 2014 law enforcement officers seized cocaine from a hidden compartment in Favreau’s car. In a separate encounter, officers seized $19,000 from a hidden compartment in a second car operated by Favreau. Officers also executed a search warrant and recovered $10,000.
