Lost key to locking lug nuts; How to break them off?

I no longer have the key to my locking lug nuts (Pep Boys apparently decided they wanted to keep it). I've been told the only solution at this point is to break them off. How is this done? Can I do it myself?

There are different methods depending on the barnd of lugs and the amount of open access around them. There are removal tools that fit some brands, others can be chiseled off. Take it to a tire store because the removal tools are only sold to professional mechanics for obvious security reasons. They also have to be used with air impact guns.
