Motions Hearing Continued in Bizarre Crowley County Case

(WARNING, a quote from the arrest affidavit has curse words in it and is represented as it was said in the court document)

(Ordway, CO) -- The motions hearing for a woman accused of trying to kidnap two Crowley County children will have to happen another day. Charlene Port was scheduled to have her motions hearing Tuesday however it was decided that it would need to be continued to allow time to hear testimony from a doctor evaluating Port.

Motions were filed to make medicine appropriate for restoration to be a requirement of the defendant and also it was suggested that Port be treated in an in-patient treatment facility. The Defense agreed to this and a new date was set for August 16th at 10:30 for a motions hearing to be held in Crowley County District court.

Judge Mark MacDonnell advised the Defense to make sure his client was aware that depending on the outcome of that hearing, Port should be ready to go into treatment immediately from the hearing.

A little on the background now from an earlier story we brought you on this case.

Port, a Las Animas County resident, has been in court 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 we recently became the focus of Port through an online review of our reporting....

Port will be in court again, August 16th for the motions hearing in the case.
