help with old Weiser deadbolt?

Hello all - I have an old Weiser deadbolt on my interior basement door (no idea why someone put it there!) that I am trying to replace. I've tried prying the face plate off both sides (no luck) and prying the rivet covers off the one side (again, no luck). There does not seem to be a slot anywhere to insert a flathead to get a good pry point on either side. Anyone have any experience removing one of these? TIA.

Take a drill and an 1/8" drill bit and drill into the center of those 2 caps. Then run a drywall screw or similar into each hole, and I bet those caps will pop off so that you can get to the screws.
