The cash is not part of the US$300,000 that was seized in relation to the robbery.
Three Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) claimed trial last month for robbery and abetting a civilian in robbing three money changers of RM930,000 at KLIA in September.
The three officers, aged between 20 and 35, hold the ranks of acting assistant commissioner, senior assistant superintendent and assistant superintendent. The civilian, who had impersonated an MACC officer during the robbery, is still at large.
They allegedly robbed the money changers inside the satellite building at KLIA on September 15.
The trio were arrested two days later after they were picked out by the victim during an identification parade.
It was earlier reported that the money changers were at the airport intending to board a flight to Singapore when the robbery took place.
The three are understood to have been carrying foreign currencies amounting to about RM2 million, which they had declared to Customs.
