This is most certainly a Cockroach, and we believe it may be the Smoky Brown Cockroach, Periplaneta fuliginosa, based on images posted to BugGuide. Of the thousands of species of Cockroaches, only a few are considered to be household pests, and we have never seen the Smoky Brown Cockroach on any of those lists, however, it is closely related to the American Cockroach which is considered to be a pest species.
