MIAMI – The FBI in Miami is asking for the public's help in finding a man accused of operating a marijuana grow house in Philadelphia.

David Fallis, who regularly uses aliases or false names, was believed to be in Miramar as of Friday, the FBI said.

In 2007, U.S. attorneys announced Fallis was indicted on charges of endangering human life while manufacturing a controlled substance (marijuana).

The indictment charged Fallis and his co-defendant, Saji Ravindran, with running a marijuana grow house at the Dockside Luxury Apartments in Philadelphia between August and December 2006.

"The charge of endangering human life is being brought in this case because of the potential dangers involved," U.S. attorney Patrick L. Meehan said in 2007. "In addition to being illegal, this was a hazardous situation exacerbated by the proximity of other residents to the grow house."

Investigators believe Fallis could have access to a firearm and should be considered armed and dangerous, the FBI said.

Fallis is described by the FBI as 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 210 pounds.

Anyone who has information about Fallis' whereabouts is asked to call the FBI at 754-703-2000.
