Damn thieves!

So my truck was broke into today. All on security cameras but it didn't matter cause they were too blurry and far away.

They gained access by jamming what I think to be a screw driver into the lock and prying forward causing the handle to door handle to break where they could manually unlock it.

My question is, can I put the driver side crew cab handle on without a lock to prevent this from happening again? I am aware of my battery went dead, I'd be SOL.

What are y'all's thoughts?
