A Port Hedland man who allegedly attempted to bribe a nurse in exchange for a fraudulent vaccine record will have his position at BHP subjected to review. David Murray Allen was charged on November 10 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. A BHP spokesperson confirmed Mr Allen was currently employed by the miner. “While there is a court process underway, BHP will review the employment status of this individual once the case has been finalised,” they said. Mr Allen on Monday faced South Hedland Magistrates Court on a string of drug related charges, as well as his fraud charge. That included 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. The court heard Mr Allen would not be entering a plea and Mr Allen’s lawyer requested an adjournment until 2022. Magistrate Gavin Maclean granted the adjournment and extended Mr Allen’s bail. Mr Allen is due to appear again in court on February 7, 2022.
