TIPS: These are some good beginnings.
Thoughts: Time and place are of absolute importance. This is for that slow, creeping infiltration. It CAN be for the first door of a dynamic operation but, that's it.

Just take a 1/4" drillbit, and drill out the pins then. if you destroy enough of the driverpins and/or springs you can use a large Flathead screwdriver to turn the cylinder.

even more quiet is a lock puller. you screw in a special screw, put a device over it and use a ratchet to pull out the entire lock.

i don't know how American locks break, but for European euro- or tail-cilinders it works great.
