Glove box lock broken

The handle on the glove box of our 2010 JK is broken. We think someone tried to break into it when we had it parked in parking lot with doors off with glove box locked. The handle moves, but is obviously broken and doesn't do anything. Yes we have made sure it is not locked. Since we can't open it, we have no way to get into it to see what is broken. Anyone have any tricks to get it open.

Try pulling up on the handle and look up inside for the piece that the handle broke from, maybe you can manually release it with a pair of needle nose pliers.

If not, you may have to pry it and probably ruin it.
