Clovis, New Mexico - A Clovis man is sentenced to 7 years in prison for trafficking cocaine.

The 9th District Attorney's office says 26 year old Jaime Salazar was sentenced Wednesday after he was found guilty by a jury back in July of 2012.
  
He was arrested by the Region V Drug Task Force in February of 2011 with $53,000 dollars in cash and over 300 grams of cocaine in his possession.

In addition to the prison time, Salazar must also be placed on two years supervised probation by the New Mexico Adult Probation and Parole Department.
