So we're deeply into nit territory, but "gets" would be the correct
tense there.  Even better, though, is to avoid using "to get" in this
way at all.  I'm informed that "to get" is one of the hardest verbs for
non-native speakers, well, to get, so I try to avoid it in my own
writing.  "once the culprit is identified" or "has been identified"
would both be good here.
