Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you.
I am really sorry to hear that this was the gratitude you were shown when all you were trying to do is get help for a co-worker and I am surprised that the supervisor does not have the brains to think of what he is doing.
You do not have to worry, you did not invade anybody's privacy. An individual has a valid expectation of privacy in his home, in an enclosed area away from public view or earshot of other people, but it is not reasonable for anyone to have an expectation of privacy in a public room at his work place and which is used by other employees. Nor, can an employee have any reasonable expectation of privacy of a personal journal which he leaves lying in the room used by other employees. Therefore, there is no way that you invaded his privacy in any way.

With respect to your job, even if you had a written Employment Agreement with your employer, the employer could terminate you for cause and if they are accusing you of stealing that would qualify as "cause".
If I were in your position and I tried to help a co-worker and then I was later accused of stealing, and terminated for that reason, I would file a lawsuit against everyone there for slander and defamation of character. I certainly would not let them do that to me and get away with it. Instead of thanking you, this is how they show their gratitude. At that point, I would have nothing to lose, so I would sue them for slander and demand damages. Please remember to leave a positive rating; it does not cost you anything additional and it is the only way I receive credit for assisting you,
