To break the tumblers would require quite a lot of force.
To remove the lock assy you need to drill the 2 safety bolts and the size required is 8mm. You can try unlocking by using a centre punch and use a hammer to tap the bolt loose, DO NOT use too much force.
With the steering wheel turned and held without the locks forced in engagement, try wiggling the key. If you can turn the key to ACC, the key cylinder can be removed by pushing in the locking pin and pulled out with the key.
