Woodlouse Spider
Dysdera crocata

This spider usually can be distinguished from others by its smooth caramel colored body,
 contrasting cream abdomen, and large fangs.
Dysdera crocata, has six eyes arranged
 in two groups of three and no bodily markings; Largely nocturnal, this species occasionally
  can be seen during the day. The large fangs of this species allow it to pierce the protective
  exoskeletons of pill bugs and other arthropods. While most other household spiders ignore
 pill bugs, this spider readily attacks them.
