The property of a well-known York City barber convicted of dealing drugs will be on the auction block Friday, police said.

Marvin Fulton -- known as "Marty the Barber" -- was convicted in September 2009 of felony drug dealing.

Fulton, 54, was sentenced to seven to 20 years in state prison, according to court records.

York City Police said an August 2008 raid on Fulton's barber shop and home, both at 36 E. Princess St., yielded more than $100,000 worth of cocaine and $53,492 in cash. The drugs and money were found in Fulton's upstairs bedroom, police said.

The raid was the culmination of a three-month investigation into Fulton, which included many hours of surveillance and multiple cocaine buys, according to police, who said Fulton supplied street-level dealers.

York City Detective First Class Andrew Shaffer said Fulton's 36 E. Princess St. property will be auctioned at noon Friday by Ziegler Auction Co. of Hummelstown. The auction will happen at 36 E. Princess St., he said.

Proceeds from the auction will go to the York County Drug Task Force, Shaffer said.

The property was seized under the nation's "zero tolerance" drug-dealing laws, which allow police to seize property purchased with illegal drug proceeds or used as part of a drug-dealing operation.
