The suspect went into hiding when police raided his palatial home on Friday, 8th July 2022 following a tip-off from the public.
Area County Commissioner Eddyson Nyale and Police Commander Daniel Rukunga led the officers in the operation in Mbeere North.
They found the alcoholic drink being mixed with sanitary towels.
However, the owner fled, with the officers in hot pursuit.
Hundreds of litres of the brew and a consignment of sanitary towels were confiscated.
Eddyson Nyale said the county security team was on high alert as the manufacturing of unlawful liquors was on the rise in the area.

The brews made in the area, he further added were not fit for human consumption.
He pledged that the crackdown on brewers in the region would continue.
