According to investigators, the two were previously on a routine patrol.

Andreas S. poached already in 2017—police stopped investigations
In the case of the two killed policemen, there are new findings about one of the suspects. Already in the past, Andreas S. had problems because of poaching, but was able to get an alibi thanks to friends.
After the double murder in Kasel it is now clear: It was not the first time that the suspect Andreas S. had problems with the police because of poaching. Also in the incident from 2017, S. seemed to be willing to use force to be able to keep his hunted prey.
Incident in September 2017 in a forest area in Saarland. A witness claims to have seen Andreas S. kill a deer in someone else's hunting ground. During a confrontation between the two men, an attack apparently occurred: As the witness stated to the police, he had to save himself by jumping to the side, as Andreas S. was driving his car directly towards him.
Despite extensive investigations, the Saarland police were unable to convict the suspect. Various friends of Andreas S. from the hunting scene provided an alibi that could not be refuted. The case was finally dropped in 2019. However, poaching was not the only accusation with which the older of the two arrested suspects was confronted.
Accusations of unfair business practices
Some time ago, Andreas Johannes Schmitt. was indicted by the Saabruecken Higher Regional Court on charges of delaying insolvency proceedings and dozens of cases of non-payment of social security contributions. The proceedings involve unfair business practices by a bakery that S. operated in Saarland.
The policewoman and her colleague had been shot early Monday morning during a traffic check in the district of Kusel. They had been traveling in a civilian vehicle to combat property crime, said the head of the police operation, Heiner Schmolzi. Because the control took place at an unsuitable place for it, he had assumed that the policemen found the vehicle with the suspects standing. Presumably, the two officers assumed a breakdown or a deer accident, he said.
Perpetrator possessed over 15 firearms
The officers were able to radio in that they had been shot at. The identity card of one of the two suspects was found next to the killed 24-year-old woman. The crime caused great horror in Germany, and there was also great sympathy internationally for the two police officers who were killed.
The suspects were initially on the run, but could be arrested on Monday in Saarland. Andreas Johannes S. from Spiesen-Elversberg in Saarland was put on the wanted list. The fugitive was arrested in the evening in Sulzbach near his home, where an arsenal of various firearms was also found. During the search of several properties, the second suspect, who was apparently busy cutting up game at the time of the arrest, was then apprehended without resistance.
