Two young girls were rewarded by the RCMP after finding and returning $400 that was stolen from the Helios physiotherapy clinic sometime on the weekend.

Sani Hupinen and Karsyn Powell were playing outside on Sunday morning when they found a bunch of envelopes on the street near Powell’s home at the top of the Douglas Street Hill.

The picked up the envelopes and found a bunch of receipts from Helios. They also found an envelope with $400 cash in it.

They immediately went to their parents and said they needed to return the money — the thought of keeping the money didn’t cross their mind.

The RCMP was contacted and on Monday morning, the money and receipts were returned to Helios.

Later that day, the RCMP presented the two girls with certificates of appreciation for “assisting the Revelstoke RCMP and being an outstanding citizen.”

RCMP Const. Kaid Shewchuk said the thieves apparently entered Helios through a back door, and smashed through a wall to gain access to the business. They made off with a stack of receipts and an unknown amount of cash.

The theft took place sometime between Friday evening and Sunday morning, when the money was found.

The RCMP continues to investigate the theft.
