This does not appear to be a beetle at all.
It appears to be the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug which is native to Asia (China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan) and was introduced to the US accidentally. The first specimen was collected around 1998 near Allentown, PA I believe. The populatipn has grown rapidly and for the last few years, it has been considered an agricultural pest. They feed on fruits and vegetables and decimate crops this way. At this point, I do not believe there are any pesticides or predators to curb their population, so they are continuing to flourish. I've witnessed their great growth in population over the last 10 years.
Another issue is that they will come inside homes during winter and during months April-June will amass in large quantities in doors, windows, etc. If crushed or handled roughly, they will emit a horrible odor.

These are shield or soldier bugs "Pentatomoidea is a superfamily of insects in the Heteroptera suborder of the Hemiptera order"

PS: they had triangular spots all around the perimeter of their back, very symmetrical, shell looked like armour plating

Can't identify but have recently found several after pruning my laurel trees, they may be responsible for significant damage - but not sure - I'd welcome any info you can provide
