Darkling Beetle
This is most likely one of the many species of Darkling Beetles to be found in California. Some folks call them "stink bugs" because they point their rear ends upward when disturbed and emit a foul smell. Please see more Darkling beetle photos here at the Bug Guide and this beetle found at Half Moon Bay: Eleodes clavicornis

pls provide exact location & capture date
