    Can you reach into the back of the lock with a thin tool and manipulate the actuator? – ThreePhaseEel Sep 6 '17 at 11:41

    Does it look like the very rearmost part of the core is broken off and still in the lock? A sharp photo of the side and rear of the core might help. – RedGrittyBrick Sep 6 '17 at 13:54

If a prybar won't deflect the top enough to open the drawer, take a hacksaw blade and saw off the locking bolt.
