Saudi religious police raided eight alcohol-producing factories in the southwest region of Aasir, Al-Madina reported on Tuesday.
The police confiscated 3,750 liters of alcoholic drinks that contained mice and were contaminated with poisonous bugs, the report said.
Awad al-Asmari, a religious police spokesperson, said all eight factories and their products were destroyed on Sunday.
The manufacturers, who have taken refuge in mountains, were aiming to target youths, Asmari added.
