Tuxedo bug

6778.    Found in kitchen running across counter-top late morning with all lights on. Initially thought it to be a cockroach, but not too sure now. Found March 18, 2020, colder outside but sunny. I live in a basement suite, and often keep the below-grade window open for fresh air. Surrey, BC. Canada
