(Crowley, CO) -- Charlene Port will be in court this week for a motions hearing in the case against her for alleged possible attempted kidnapping and posting a law enforcement officer's personal information on line.
The case has received national attention after it was learned that Port allegedly was doxing a fertility specialist in Weld County who Port claims stole two of her embryos at a auction. The case is in the 16th Judicial district, Crowley county because according to court documents CNYW obtained, Port was attempting to locate and take those two Crowley county children she believed to be hers.
The arrest affidavit states that Port left her home in Las Animas County to drive to Ordway and bought a memory book from the elementary school in 2020. She then placed the photographs from that book on her social media Facebook page. The names of the children were redacted, or left out, of the court document to protect their identity.
It was confirmed that Port isn't related to the children or to the parents.
When Sheriff's deputies from Las Animas county contacted Port to explain to her that if she attempted to take the children, she would be charged with kidnapping. Port then, according to the court document, became upset and stated, "I'm going to blow your fucking head off pig" she repeated "fucking pig," and then hung up.
Port is also on the docket in Weld county facing charges there for allegedly threatening a fertility doctor through the internet and mail. The arrest affidavit states that in 2020 the Erie Police Department contacted the Crowley County Sheriffs office because they discovered social media posts on the platform, MeWe, of where it was believed that Port was using the name "Sharleen Targon" to post photographs of a deputy to include his wife, his date of birth and names of family members. The post made under the name of Sharleen Targon details the raid on her home. Some of the posts that were discovered and reported were shown to be posted on the day after Port was released from the Crowley County jail.
Colorado News Your Way first became aware of the this case in Crowley county after comments and posts in news story threads under the name Donald Eanes made claims toward certain court officials in the 16th Judicial district. The posts and comments had nothing to do with our posts. This is when we started looking into this. Here are some of the screenshots of what got our attention. We also discovered that port may be using the name Jane Hendricks to continue posting.
And while it wasn't under the name Donald Eanes, we noticed a new name posting the exact same information that was posted before.
The last time Port was in court in Crowley County it was stated by the district attorney's office they believed that Port was continuing to post on social media.
The upcoming court appearance is a motions hearing. The motions hearing is generally set before the jury trial for both sides file motions for the court to take actions.
The motions hearing for Port in Crowley county is set for Tuesday, Jul 26th at 1:30. Port is scheduled to be in court in Weld county on September 7th at 8:15am.
