Portland, Maine: Acting United States Attorney Richard W. Murphy announced that Derrick Favreau, 33, of Auburn, Maine, was sentenced today in U.S. District Court by Chief Judge Nancy Torresen to 63 months in prison and three years of supervised release for possession with intent to distribute cocaine.  He was also fined $5,000.   He pleaded guilty July 26, 2016.

According to Court records, in May 2014, law enforcement officers seized distributable amounts of cocaine from a hidden compartment in Favreau’s vehicle.  Later, officers seized $19,000 from a hidden compartment in a second vehicle operated by Favreau and $10,000 during the execution of a search warrant.

This case was investigated by the Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, the Maine State Police, the Lewiston and Auburn Police Departments, and the Androscoggin County Sheriff’s Office.
