How can I break into an (empty) filing cabinet?

We have an old Hon 4 drawer filing cabinet like this
and a staff member wants to take it home to store tools in. It's locked, and we can't find the key. He doesn't want it unless I can get it unlocked, and I want it out of here!
I tried all the suggestions, including Adam Savage's, in this
thread, to no avail. I think the lock construction is different on these guys, but I couldn't get the pin to budge.
I have all the tools you might find around an office including metal letter openers, paper clips, and we also have a small tool-kit. Any thoughts?
