LEWISTON, Maine — Police say a Boston man was in the county jail Friday after he was caught dealing crack cocaine in a motel room in the company of a teenage girl and an infant.

Ronald Theodat, 33, of Dorchester was being held on $25,000 cash bail Friday night after he was arrested on a charge of unlawful trafficking in cocaine.

Police said Wednesday night that an undercover drug agent went to a motel room at the Super 8 in Lewiston, where he bought five grams of crack from Theodat for $220.

Inside the room was a 15-year-old girl and an infant under 1 year of age, according to a police affidavit.

After making the undercover buy, Maine Drug Enforcement agents continued to watch the motel and the suspect. A few minutes later, police said, Theodat left in a car with another woman.

Lewiston police stopped the car a short distance away. A search of Theodat turned up the marked money the agent had used to buy the crack cocaine.

According to court records, Theodat has a long criminal history in the Boston area, including convictions for drug dealing and robbery. Because of those prior convictions, Theodat was charged with a Class A felony.

He made his initial appearance in Androscoggin County Superior Court and was returned to jail.
