    It doesn't look like a bed bug to me. The antennae are too prominent, and also, the body shape is unlike a bed bug's. But best wait for Lou or David to confirm.

    It’s a beetle not a bedbug.

    Hope that helps.

    It looks like a silvanid beetle, so possibly Oryzaephilus species -- something like a saw-toothed grain beetle or merchant grain beetle. This kind of beetle would be a stored product pest species.
    Need a close-up picture for better ID.
