Painesville police posted a snap from the webcam on their Facebook page Thursday, and within hours, thousands had seen the post, according to Police Chief Anthony Powalie.

Powalie said they got a bunch of tips from people on their post, and thanks to those tips; they think they've got him.

"We have anonymous tips that were called in, we have tips on the page itself. We believe we've identified this suspect," Powalie said.
