Any way to start a 2003 vw eurovan with broken ignition anti theft ring

(2003 Volkswagen EuroVan)
I bought a 2003 vw eurovan at a police auction, and when I went to pick it up I was told there was no keys for it.this van was seized from a house in a drug raid. wich is where it was left by whoever had stolen it! the ignition cylinder had been broken out.so I just want to know is there a way to bypass this antitheft thing or a way to just wire up a regular ignition, instead of buying factory part from vw?or any type of fix for cheap?
thank you

I bought the part from parts geek and replaced it myself ---there are bunch of videos available online....I also ended up replacing the ignition switch, its better if they are replaced at the sometime.....That's only half of the story. You would have to tow your car to the stealership to reprogram ($$134 two min job) the new Key else it would put the car in "immobilizer mode" which mean it will crank and you would think its going to start but dies soon after :( . Hope that helps
