Is there a way to search for members who have multiple books in a series?

Not really.  You can try searching Boxer member shelves for multiple books by the same author or title. Click on Community tab at the top of any page, then choose Box-O-Books link from the dropdown menu, which will bring you to the BoB search fields. Fill in, then click Search Boxer Books button.  Or you can search the Book Bazaar discussion forum (especially Multiple Books / Same Author topic).

you can always ask in the book bazaar.  Just start a topic by saying something like looking for these series from people who have muliple books in series. You can even ask for a deal. Some people are very generous when offering deals.

Another way to find series books is to start an order for one of them and use the 'order more from member' button to look at the rest of their shelf. If they have other books you can order and if not you can back out of the order completely without it going through. Check for each book as members are at different places in the FIFO.

I've done this to order series having several books. In fact, if its an older series thats been sitting on their shelf I don't order any at all at first, but PM to see if they're willing to do a deal since they would benefit from the postage savings of sending more than one book. I always explain about deals and the book bazaar forum in case they're not familiar with that aspect of PBS.
