UPDATE : Cape Coral Police say they have identified the man accused of stealing two Yeti coolers from a local store, and that he was already in jail.

They say thanks to the surveillance footage and social media, they were able to identify the suspect.

Police say Tuesday morning, the owner at the Family Hardware store gave them the surveillance video. 

They said that two people identified the thief as 26-year-old Joshua Cunningham.

Police say also on Tuesday, Cunningham was arrested in Fort Myers on trespassing and failure to appear charges. 

They were able to develop enough probable cause to charge Cunningham with grand theft, when he was already behind bars in the Lee County Jail.
