Attorney General Martha Coakley announced Friday the arrest of four individuals in East Boston and Chelsea accused of running a “sophisticated human trafficking operation.’’ The arrests are the first under the state’s new human trafficking law.

The alleged leaders of the ring, Rafael Henriquez, 39, and his wife, Ramona Carpio Hernandez, 50, were arrested Friday morning in East Boston. Authorities also arrested Milton Lopez-Martinez, 26, in East Boston, and Diego Suarez, 34 in Chelsea. The two men are accused of running the daily operations.
