A Bethune man will spend more than eight years in prison for his involvement in a steroid manufacturing and distribution case.

According to a U.S. Attorney for South Carolina press release, U.S. District Judge Cameron McGowan Currie sentenced Christopher Britt Beebe, 39, of Bethune to 97 months in prison, five years supervised release and a $200 special assessment. Currie sentenced Beebe in Columbia on charges of conspiracy to distribute steroids and possession of a firearm in relation to a drug trafficking crime.

Evidence presented at a recent change of plea hearing established Beebe and others manufactured and then distributed steroids from 2004 to 2015 throughout the United States via the internet. Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputies discovered the conspiracy when they responded to a report Beebe’s girlfriend, Candace Altman, had been killed by a gunshot to the head at Beebe’s residence. When they arrived at the residence, deputies discovered a large amount of steroids.

The KCSO and U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency investigated the case, prosecuted by Asst. U.S. Attorney William E. Day II.
