Photo of CLOSED: Baby roach?

I can't for the life of me figure out what these are! I have found some FROZEN inside my freezer and squished some crawling on the insulation of the fridge and freezer. I have found a couple in my bathroom, on the floor near where the tile meets the bathtub. Last night however, I happened to go into my kitchen after already having turned lights off for the night and saw probably 10 scatter across the middle of the floor when I turned the light on! I also found two LARGE roaches last night, but neither were near the location of these bugs in the kitchen. My apartment complex sprayed for roaches about a month ago and I feel like these have been around since then.

The picture is one I caught using a trap of water and dishsoap in a shallow plate with a blackberry in the middle. It is the only one I caught :(

The bugs are tear drop shaped with two long antenae. Their back end is striped and the front part has a brown/tan color. The pic shows little pincher looking things at the tail end but these aren't really visible when you just look at them. They obviously have legs, but they don't stick out so you can see them when they walk which makes me think it isn't a tick.
