The stolen items have has included foodstuffs, fishing equipment and solar panels.
"These are crimes of opportunity so the key to stopping these thieving miscreants is - don't give them the opportunity and secure your gear," Snr Cnst O'Brien said.
"Also, if you see someone you think could be up to no good, get a good description of the person for police, in case they have committed an offence."
