A Port Hedland man has denied attempting to bribe a nurse in exchange for a fraudulent vaccine record. David Murray Allen faced South Hedland Magistrates Court last week after being charged in November 2021 with one count of attempting to induce a person to do an unlawful act by fraud, as well as numerous drug-related offences. The 31-year-old allegedly attended an appointment at Hedland Health Campus on November 10 to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. After being escorted to a booth to be vaccinated, it was alleged Mr Allen handed the vaccination nurse a note offering money in exchange for a fraudulent vaccine record. When the nurse refused, the man left and was later charged by South Hedland detectives. Mr Allen entered a plea of not guilty to one charge of induce a person to do an unlawful act by fraud, as well as numerous drug-related offences. He is yet to enter a plea to six counts of unlawful possession of a controlled or prescription drug, possession of a prohibited drug, cultivating a prohibited plant and possession of drug paraphernalia in or on which there was a prohibited drug or plant. When Mr Allen first appeared in court in November, a BHP spokesperson said Mr Allen worked for the company but his employment status would be reviewed while the court process was in progress. BHP has since confirmed to the North West Telegraph that Mr Allen is no longer employed by the company. Mr Allen will next appear before the South Hedland Magistrates Court on May 19.
