Blatta lateralis
Based on the whitish stripes found on the lateral margins of the wings, I believe that you have found a Turkistan Cockroach (Blatta lateralis).

I live in Adelanto, CA (just outside Victorville) and have found the Turkestan cockroach in my grass and gravel. Has not come in the house. This picture is a female, the male is a little bigger and a light tan with wings.
