Cockroach Identification


hello, I am new to this thread. I recently found 2-3 suspicious bugs over the past two or three weeks. usually by themselves, roaming in my basement when i do laundry. I am worried that the few bugs i found are cockroaches. there is absolutely no food or anything like that to attract them in my house. I live in northwest indiana if that helps any bit. here are a couple pictures. please help, thanks.

Re: Cockroach Identification


I agree, it's some form of harmless beetle not a roach.
Closest one I could find a picture of.
