The Rock returns to the scene of the crime

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has returned to the scene of the crime - a local 7-11 in Hawaii.

When he was 14, he used to steal Snickers bars from them on his way to the gym, and it's something that's been, 'gnawing,' at him for decades.

The actor posted a video of himself entering the shop and buying all the Snickers bars they had.

He told the shopkeeper his story, and then insisted on paying for every customer in the shop while he was there.

The 50-year-old also left the Snickers bars with the shopkeeper to hand out to future customers for free.

In his caption, he wrote, 'I finally exorcised this damn chocolate demon that’s been gnawing at me for decades'

'We were evicted from Hawaii in ‘87 and after all these years - I finally got back home to right this wrong.'

'I was broke as hell, so I used to steal a king sized @snickers EVERY DAY from 7-11 for almost a year when I was 14yrs old, on my way to the gym.'

He explained, 'The Snickers was my pre daily workout'

'The same clerk was there every day and always just turned her head and never busted me.'

'I’ve exercised a few big demons over the years (I still have a few left;) so I know this one seems VERY SILLY, but every time I come back home to Hawaii and drive by 7-11…'

The Rock continued, 'I always knew I needed to go in and clean out every Snickers bar they had - the right way'

'And as a bonus it was a lot of fun to take care of everybody who walked into 7-11 while I was there. Least I could do considering all the sh*t I used to steal from here'

'We can’t change the past and some of the dumb stuff we may have done, but every once in a while we can add a little redeeming grace note to that situation — and maybe put a big smile on some stranger’s faces.'
