Almost two decades after being caught running a drug ring in Arizona, former mob hit man Salvatore "Sammy the Bull" Gravano has been released from prison.

According to the station, the reason why he was in a federal prison in Arizona was that he was busted for starting a major ecstasy ring that made about $500,000 per week.

He was let out of prison September 18 and will remain on federal parole for the rest of his life, as ordered by a Brooklyn federal court judge when he was sentenced in 2002, according to reports.

It wasn't known where he had been serving his time and there was no word on where he planned to live.

The infamous 72-year-old mobster - who helped federal investigators bring down mob boss John Gotti - was released five years early from a 17-year sentence.

The New York Post said Gravano moved to Tempe after a stint in the Witness Protection Program. He was arrested in 2000 and in September of 2002, he was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
