"It is obviously happening a lot here and the police seem to be doing very little about it.
"If it is a recurring thing then something needs to be done about this."
Mr Sullivan said the thefts and subsequent damage to his mopeds has set him back £200 so far.
Spokesperson for the police Wayne Baker said: "It appears the moped was parked on the grounds of the property under a rain cover which was left behind when the bike was stolen between 10.30pm on February 25 and 7.30am the next morning.
"Police enquiries are continuing into the incident."
Anyone with information should call police on 101.
