It *may* be an Oryzaephilus laying on its back, but there's no way to be sure based on this picture. The body shape is too blurry and hardly visible.
If it is in fact an Oryzaephilus, it could be either of the two cosmopolitan species O. surinamensis or O. mercator, which are both well-known "pests" in stored food (such as dried dates, cereals, nuts etc.). There's a number of other possibilities, but based on the habitat given, Oryzaephilus seems likely.
