Ground beetle

6433. Found on the floor of house in the kitchen. There were a few found. June 2019 in Ontario. Black underbelly. Six legs. Light brown. Stripes down body but doesn’t start at head. No spikes on legs. Worried it was a German cockroach but doesn’t seem to fit the pictures. Please advise. Thanks. Birchview Drive, Oshawa, ON. Canada

Number 6433. This is a ground beetle (Coleoptera: Carabidae). The vast majority of these beetles are general predators on other small arthropods, but a few rogue species feed on germinating seeds.
