Maybe you don't think property crime is a problem in need of a solution, or maybe you have an alternative solution in mind. I'm open minded to effective alternatives.
I don't think property crime is a capital offense, or ever should be considered as such.
The solution is at the same time easy and difficult - vote in legislators who write laws that have teeth in them; elect executives who place judges in power who will enforce those laws (or when you can vote for judges, vote for that type).
In my neck of the woods, this is called representative democracy.
