How long for?
Have you been consistent in your punishments? Or just enforced them sometimes?
She needs to know that if she steals again she will lose ALL privileges for 2 weeks. That means ALL technology, and her room will be stripped to the bare essentials. All you legally have to provide is 3 meals a day, basic clothing and somewhere to sleep. That doesn't mean a bed, that is a mattress on the floor.
You need to show her that you will NOT tolerate her behaviour.
Time to get tough and let her know that she will live by the rules or she will have a miserable life. Let her know that if she continues stealing she will be in jail and life is tough in there.

We also deprived her from the TV and her phone for sometimes. But it doesn't seem to help.

What punishment have you enforced?
Surely you haven't just spoken to her!
